A Mass of Christian Burial and interment in St. Mary’s Cemetery will be announced at a later date. Memorial contributions, in her memory, may be made to Our Lady of Peace Parish. Mamie was born in Clooncara, County Mayo, Ireland, the daughter of Harry and Margaret Frain Higgins. A resident of Geneva since 1959, Mamie lived with her Aunt and Uncle, Mollie and Joe McDonough, upon her arrival in the United States. She was employed at McCurdy’s of Geneva for over 30 years and was a member of Our Lady of Peace Parish. She is survived by her sister-in-law, Myra Higgins of Lakewood, Ohio; Nieces and Nephews: Bernadette Helmer of Geneva, Teresa Millis of Lakewood, OH, Johnpaul Higgins of Chicago, IL, Myra Pollock, Adam Higgins, Katie Helmich, Lucy Higgins, and Andrea Higgins all of Lakewood, OH, Mary King of Atlanta, GA, and Elon Hertzfeld of CT; Grandnieces and Grandnephews, Kyra Helmer and Skye Helmer; Great Grandnephew, Carter Maxon; cousins, Sue Kirchhausen of Geneva, Robert and Peter Kirchhausen, and Lauren Daab; and several other grandnieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her sister, Kathleen Hertzfeld; her brother, John Higgins; and her nephew, Stephen Higgins. Christened Bridget Mary Higgins, she became known as Mamie after her big brother John had trouble pronouncing her name. Now, for those of us fortunate enough to have known and loved her, the name Mamie will always be a source of joy as we remember her selfless heart, her boundless generosity, and the countless ways in which she enriched all our lives. She will be missed more than we can express in words. To send flowers or a memorial gift to the family of Mamie Higgins please visit our Sympathy Store.
