Mimi was a wonderful dancer, singer, and musician. It was a joy to have her in Duquesne Juniors. She was always full of energy, possessed a positive attitude, lit up the stage with her smile, and was a friend to all. Rest In Peace, dear Mimi ❤️ To Karen and family: May the fond memories that you have of Mimi comfort you at this most difficult time. Memory Eternal

Mimi was a joy to be around. I am sad that our time together was so limited. I am comforted by the Bible verses of John 5:28,29, which state “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” The time when death will be swallowed up forever (Isaiah 25:8). I look forward to seeing her again.

I'm so so sorry for the loss of Mimi. I worked with her at crazy 8 and she was a great person. She was always so happy and uplifting. I'm having a hard time imagining her gone. She always talked about her kids and was a very giving person. My most sincere condolences to her family

I had the privilege of working with and knowing Mimi over the course of three years, and consider myself lucky to have done so. She was kind, compassionate, had a big heart, and always made me laugh. She was one of a kind and was more to me than just a boss, she was also a mentor and friend. I will miss her dearly.

I don't understand how such a tragedy could happened. I used to hang out with her back in our late 20's. We lost touch years ago. I don't understand how this can happen to such a wonderful person. I would love to talk with her family. 412 209 5920.
