Mickey always enjoyed life to the fullest. She would never turn down a chance to dance nor would she ever divulge her age. She could always light up the room and bring smiles with her antics.

She has been a resident of Webb City Health and Rehab for over 10 years where she was their senior resident. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the staff of Webb City Health and Rehab, and also to the staff and Doctors of Avalon Hospice for all their care and help.
