Marie Frances "Mimi" McMahon nee Kalamaja, passed away on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at the age 96.

Marie was born July 4th, 1920 in Denver, CO. Her birthday suited her personality, as she was a firecracker. Marie graduated from Cathedral High School in 1938.

Marie took up nursing for a family of 12.

Mimi loved to sew and embroider. She loved to make porcelain dolls and their clothes. She loved to travel, especially with fellow doll admirers to see the European doll makers and museums.
