Mim graduated from Chicago Vocational School and went on to be a Licensed Practical Nurse. She had a storied 42-year career at South Shore Hospital in Chicago, IL. In her time at South Shore she worked in the Emergency Room, Surgery, and as a Floor Nurse. Mim was a long-time member of Elim Baptist Church in Chicago, IL. She lived out her faith as a deaconess and Women’s Bible Study leader. Mim loved going fast, whether the fast pace of the ER or driving fast cars. As a young woman she won many stock car races at the 87th Street Speedway, including the Briley Golden Championship in 1953. She loved spending time with family and relished her role as a loving grandmother.
