She was known as Mimi to her friends and family. She was a mother to Joanne (Jimmy Ferro), Charles (Eve Passeltiner) and Dominique Savoie, and a grandmother to Shaina Long and Ari Ferro.
Mimi passed away surrounded by her family in St. Johnsbury, Vt., on Jan 18, 2014, where she had been living for the past five years. She lived in Moab for three years (2005-2008) and was a frequent visitor prior to those years.
She will always be remembered for her cooking and was an inspiration to many. She enjoyed the needle crafts and painting and spent the last few years providing beautiful hats and scarves for many needy heads and necks, as well as selling a few of her beautiful creations in local galleries.
In lieu of flowers and cards, donations can be made to hospice in her name.
