Mom wanted a casual service, come as you are!
Mickey was a daughter, sister, wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great grandma and a friend to many.
She loved and cared about people in general. She was blessed with a man that she was deeply love with. She has two sons Gary and Mike that loved her beyond anything. She was blessed with a Grandson Michael and Granddaughter Christie that she love with all of her heart. She loved it when her great grandkids would come visit her. They had just decorated her Christmas tree. I’m so happy that they had the opportunity to do one last thing for her. Chloe, Ariah and Tyler wanted everyone to know how much they loved their grandma Mickey and that they will miss hugging and her kissing her on the cheek. Grandma Mickey would say Ariah had the cuties smile and Chloes had all those freckles. She would tell her great grandson Tyler that he was the Most handsome Young man she had ever seen, he would smile at her and say thank you. They just want grandma to be happy in heaven.
She was a strong person when her husband passed away she stood strong she went to work to take care of her self. She found a job at JC Penney’s. One of her jobs was to clean and maintain the bathrooms, she took pride in those bathrooms she liked show them off, she also worked in the stockroom. She would come home after working all day and take care of her home and family with pride.
She always had a very strong faith in her God. She tried to live her life according to the readings of the Bible by helping people that were in need, she always gave from the heart.
A few weeks ago I was sitting with her, she told me that her husband had been there and that he wanted her to join him. I asked her if she wanted go with him, she looked at me and said that she wanted to be with him again. I hope with all of my heart that he took her by the hand and lead her to heaven. I believe with all of my heart that she is where she wants to be. I’m so happy that I had the privilege of knowing this wonderful lady. I will miss her she was big part of my life for many years.
God bless her.
Marie worked with your Mother at Penny’s. She was a sweet heart. You will see here again.
God Bless You & family Mike.
Carl & Marie Franklin
Marie worked with you Mother at Penny’s. She was a sweet heart for sure, I know you have wonderful memories of your Mother. You will see her again. God Bless you & Family Mike.
Gary and Mike: I saw your mom’s obituary and am so sorry I will be out of town so can’t attend the funeral. I wanted to send my condolences and tell you how much I loved your mom. She was such a part of my growing up years and my mom’s best friend. I remember them sitting at your kitchen table visiting, drinking coffee and eating your mom’s wonderful desserts/cookies when I would get home from school. She was a remarkable woman. When she lost your dad so unexpectedly, she dug in and went to work and continued to maintain her home and yard. Always the show place of neatness! I have thought about her for years and wondered how she was doing. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Jane (Brown) Hedges
