    I worked with Mixie and Danny at Millerbernd for 6 years back in the late 50’s and early 60’s. We had really good times together bowling, fishing and spending time at the Blue Note and many other places. We really shared good times together. She and Danny were fun to be around and Mixie was a very good employee at Millerbernd. Last time I saw Mixie is when I gave the Memorial Address at the cemetery on Memorial Day 1996. May God be with her!
