“I am so sorry to learn of Mimi's passing. She was a wonderful friend to me at Havre de Grace Middle School. What a patient person she was as she worked with our students with learning disabilities. Mimi always saw the best in them, and she brought it out of them. My sympathy to Mark and her family.

My condolences to the family. I knew the Raudenbush family growing up. They were a very lovely family. I served with "Rev" in the Susquehanna Hose Company. Talked with Mimi many times on Facebook, about Arena Football. She was always a very caring and sweet lady.
