MIRIAM “MIM” CAVENDER
June 3, 1935-April 24, 2017
Mim delighted in baking, cooking and dinnertime with family, friends and neighbors; “the hostess with the mostest.” As a young woman, Mim traveled the United States, excelled in modeling, and quietly fostered an undiscovered artistic ability. She was quite the pianist and played “by ear.” Her zest for life was evident in her colorful jungle-themed apartment, which embodied her love for flowers, plants and African wildlife. Surviving: her daughter, Teri (Kurt) Lennon; son, Jeff Cavender; grandchildren, Shawn (Brandi) Scott, Autumn Walton and Bryan Cavender; step-grandchild, Christy; great grandchildren: Drake, Ali, Emilia, Chelsee and Rayne, sister Marla (Al) Hedstrom and brother Max. Preceding her in death were her parents, husband Dick and her brother, Keith. Family and friends will be invited to a Celebration of Life on Saturday, July 1. Location to be announced.
