Mamie created a thriving house cleaning business, working for many Racine area families for years. Her reputation preceded her. Mamie lived a long life, filled with love, always laughing and sharing her joy. Those privileged to know her all loved her.

Left to treasure her memory include her “adopted” family, Barbara, Marla, Marilyn, Karen, and their families. Preceding her in death are her beloved fiancé, Bill; her favorite Aunt Lula; dear friend, Mary. 

To all the staff at Elizabeth Gardens, a very special thank you for the excellent care and kindness over the past five years. Your love for Mamie will never be forgotten.


Private services will be held.
