Mimi loved serving her family and the students of Texarkana College. She loved classic movies and having the company of her dogs by her side. She also had a great love of music. One of her favorite songs was "Run for the Roses" by Dan Fogelberg. The chorus states the following:

"And it's run for the roses, as fast as you can Your fate is delivered, your moment's at hand It's the chance of a lifetime, in a lifetime of chance And it's high time you joined in the dance It's high time you're joined in the dance"

Mimi has finished her run for the roses. She now joins in that great celestial dance with her loving Lord. May she rest in peace.

I will always remember what a sweet soul you are Mimi. You were so kind to my Bonnie when you had to dog sit for me. You are an amazing mother, wife and friend. I can remember thinking, when I would see you and your family together, how blessed your life was and how I wish I could be adopted into your family LOL. I never shared that with Joe so shhhhh! it will be our secret. God Speed Mimi. With love always

I was a fellow student with Mimi at St Agnes academy . she was so considerate always. I will always thank her for arranging a prom date for me junior year with one of her friends. These were the days you ha d to have a date and she helped me out. Small thing but something I still remember and am grateful for.

My family joined Northside Church about 32 years ago. She was the first one to come up and welcome us. Invited us to their home for dinner. So sad to hear about this but she can walk and run with the Lord.

Joe and family, There are of course no words to take away your pain. I am praying for GOD's Grace to be sufficient as y'all adjust to this different life. Praying for peace, John 14:27.
