We were so sorry to hear of Mimi's passing. She was a vibrant wonderful woman and a great neighbor many years ago. We always enjoyed seeing Mimi at the libraries. She will be missed.

I cannot believe that Mimi is gone. She was much too young and vibrant to have left so soon. May warm and loving memories of her fill family and friends' hearts. May her family find healing and peace and comfort in their thoughts of her. I truly regret not having spent more time with her…I always thought there would be another day. Lesson sadly learned.
My son Michael Griffin used to work with Mimi in Ypsilanti while he was in high school. She was such a wonderful, positive woman and I'm sorry to learn about her passing. Carolyn Griffin
Mimi touched so many lives. I knew her through the book group, as a sometimes member. I also had the opportunity to consult with her professionally. I am truly sorry for your loss. May your hearts find peace in the memories and strength in each other.
I would like to share a memory:
I attended a book group meeting at Mimi's house one fall day. I remember how welcome I and all the book group members felt. We discussed the book, a title I can't even recall any longer, but what struck me most was how well Mimi had researched the locations. She even brought in supporting materials and maps!
Eventually the conversation turned to Mimi's family. Elizabeth was away at college; she was so proud and discussed her accomplishments. I remarked on the piano in the room and she mentioned that her daughter played. She shared stories of Peter and his friendship with Deb Thomas' son. And spoke fondly of her husband, Dietmar. I only spent this short afternoon with Mimi, but the love and happiness she felt for her family came shining through.
It was such a delight to see Mimi with Deb Biggs Thomas in Chicago in July. We had such a great time and it's hard to believe she is gone. Her positive energy touched me and I wish Dietmar and family great solace.
