We are so proud of you mom for putting up one heck of a fight all the way to the end. Your fight allowed us to have 8 extra months with you. You taught us what it meant to put others before yourself especially family. You may be gone but you will never be forgotten. You are my HERO….I love you..Always and Forever..your son Richard

Myrna Merunka says:

To a great and loving mother-in-law. Thank you for 28 years of always being there for me. I learned a lot from you. Thank you for your love and kindness and accepting me as one of the family. I miss playing bingo with you and our conversations over coffee. I will especially miss our Sunday dinners. I love you and miss you but will never forget you..Myrna

Patrick Riley says:

Grandma, you influenced my life in more ways than I could ever begin to try and list. I appreciate every bit of advice you ever gave me, and you never steered me wrong. I love you very much and I miss you greatly.

Kristi Riley says:

My favorite memory of my grandma is once when I was complaining about money because I was between jobs and was worried even about buying food. She told me how her mom cooked for 10 people every single day-8 kids plus her mom and dad. She taught me how to make 2 amazing dishes-macaroni and peas and lentils. She laughed when I asked her what “a little bit” of basil meant or “a bunch” of salt for the lentils meant. She looked at me like I was nuts for wanting precise measurements. (I’m a terrible cook.) I messed them up a lot, but ended up perfecting them. They are my two favorite things to cook now, and my own two children love them both. My oldest daughter’s face lights up when I tell her either one is what is for dinner, and the picky eater goes back for seconds. You can’t make these dishes without a lot of love, and Grandma knew that. I always thought of her when serving them to my kids, and now more than ever, I know that a part of Grandma will be there every time I make these meals from her childhood for my girls. She taught me a lot of things, but I know she loved the fact that meals from when she was a little girl and passed down from her own mom were still making the youngest members of our family happy and full.

There are so many other things, but I’m most grateful for this. I love you so much Grandma. Thank you for everything. You know what I mean, even though I can’t write it all here. I’m glad you are with your mom now. We’ll all be ok down here-you set us all up for happiness and success and did a phenominal job. I’m proud of you, and I’m so lucky you’re my Grandma, and hope one day I’ll be as good of a Grandma as you.

Love forever and ever,
Kristi, Kaitlyn, and Alina

Darlene Royer says:

I can not even begin to express how much I love you mom and how much I miss you already. There are just no words. We shared so much together. You are the best mother a daughter could ever hope for. I am so grateful that I was chosen to have a mother as wonderful as you. You endured so much in your life and never complained. You are truly an inspiration to me and all your family. I will so miss all the times we spent together even if it was just sitting, drinking coffee and talking for hours. We have had so many good times together and I will cherish every one of them. I will love and miss you forever. Your daughter, Darlene

Priscilla Basante says:

To my “Aunt Min” – Thank you so much for the fun visits, great 2 hour phone calls, comforting words at the worst of times and all the laughs in the best (I think I’ll miss your laugh the most!)….you leave here with us, such an amazing family, who are such clear evidence of your strength, warmth, commitment and love….. and a very grateful niece for having such a wonderful aunt. You will be in our hearts forever. With all our love, Pris, Joe & Joseph

Angie Wall says:

I never met Mickey, but I have heard about her for years through my co-worker and her husband, Richard. I know she must have been a wonderful and loving person just from hearing the things that Richard has said about her over the last 30 years and from seeing his sadness during her illness. They definitely had a special bond and love. My prayers are with Richard, the children, grandchildren, and all of the family through this difficult time.

Mindy Rainwater says:

I think I was seventeen years old when I first met Micki. I was immediately drawn in and loved her from the start. I watched the open, warm and loving relationships she had with her children and it inspired me to build a stronger relationship with my own mother. I hope she knows that she deserves credit for that and for setting the bar so high. I loved watching her laugh with her family (especially at something Chris either said or did)! Micki, I will always have a special place in my heart reserved for you. You will be missed.

Love always,

Jerry and Sandra Ballard says:

Jerry and I are so saddened to hear of Mickey’s passing. She was a lovely person and we loved being with her. She made me feel as if we had been friends always. I’m just sorry we did not get to spend more time together. Richard, you and your family are in our hearts and prayers . Please call on us if we can help in any way. I know you have many beautiful memories and I’m so glad that you did the cruise together.

Michelle says:

Grandma you had a beautiful soul to match your physical beauty. You were the strongest and bravest person I knew. You have inspired and influenced me in countless ways. Anyone that has ever met you, even if for only a moment, would say that they had a special bond with you. You had this way about you that made everyone feel special.
When my parents and I moved back to the states and I met you for the first time, I instantly fell in love with you. One of my earliest memories was when I was 3 or 4 and I had just gotten off the phone with you and turned to my parents and told them “I miss grandma, I want to see grandma”. I don’t know how my parents managed it but they got me a plane ticket and off to grandma’s house I went for the summer.
You were the glue of this family and did so much for everyone. You always gave of yourself so selflessly and never once complained. I already deeply miss you and I love you so much and always will.

Rosie says:

It would be virtually impossible for me to express verbally the influence you have had on my life and the lives of my family, Aunt Mickey. When we came to Texas you welcomed us with open arms, warmth, and love. You and Uncle Rich made us feel accepted and loved. Both of my children adored you. Your smile was always infectious, your advice always given with love and wisdom, and your ear always available to anyone who needed it. You made everyone feel special and loved. I will hold your memory close to me always. There is a void in the lives of many people because you affected so many. We love you and we will miss you, but we are so grateful you are at peace now. No one deserved peace more than you.

Lou and Yoli Fasulo says:

Midge,I will always remember you rescuing me from that horrible teacher at school so many times. I was so grateful. I love you forever & now you don’t have to run so fast to catch that phone. I know even now you are with me always. Thank you for being you and being my wonderful sister. Yoli & I will love you forever.

Joann and Ken says:

We are so sad at the passing of Aunt Mick. She was always bright and cheerful, even when she was feeling badly. I loved her beautiful smile and her laugh. I will keep her smile in my heart.

Dorothy says:

Love ,Dorothy

Brian Holbrook says:


I will never forget your cheerful smile, hospitality and always ready with a pot of coffee and an ear to listen.

To Richard and my cousins please know all of you are in our prayers.

Esther Byrd says:

Mickey was a sweet lady with great inner peace and strength. I know she had some chronic medical issues, but she never let them get her down and she always had a smile on her face. God bless you Mickey, rest in peace.
