Mildred "Mimi" Rubin, born May 23, 1927, in Houston, Texas, passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 23, after a lengthy battle with Parkinson's Disease. A lifetime Houstonian, Mimi attended the University of Texas at Austin until her sophomore year when she met the love of her life, the late Alfred L. Rubin, on a blind date. Mimi and Al were married for 62 years and enjoyed a life of dancing and traveling and shared a passion for Judaism and their three children. Mimi enjoyed her years of working at Neiman Marcus, and, later in her life, a career in real estate. She will be most remembered for her witty personality, her flair for fashion, and her compassion for others.
