Mimi loved the Lord and dedicated her life to Him. Heaven is surely rejoicing with her arrival! She was an enthusiastic member of Mountain West Church of God in Stone Mountain, Georgia, and was more than devoted to her church family.

Mimi had a magnetic personality and a kind, gentle, loving spirit that drew people to her. She never met a stranger and was dearly loved by all who knew her; however, none loved Mimi more deeply than her family. Every conversation ended with “I love you most!” Our memories of you will never fade Mimi…we’ll always love you most!

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in her name to Mountain West Church of God, 4818 Hugh Howell Road, Stone Mountain, Georgia 30019. Please sign the online guestbook or send a Hugs from Home at
