Mimi was born in Michigan City, Indiana, to Herbert and Jane Radtke.

She grew up in Chesterton, IN, and graduated from Chesterton High School. She received her B.A. in textiles from Colorado State University. Mimi worked in the family business, Pioneer Lumber, as an accountant, where she met the love of her life, Michael Eddy. The couple wed in Hawaii on June 25, 1994. In 2002, after spending years with Reno Air and American Airlines as a customer service representative, she moved from Nevada to Florida. In Florida, she was an active volunteer at John Leggio's Center for the Performing Arts, where she helped with costuming and sets for various productions alongside her daughter, Vivian. Mimi was a devout Catholic and member of St. Mary, Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church in Masaryktown, FL. One of her greatest joys was traveling; some of her favorite places were Ocean City, Maryland; Vero Beach, FL; and Walt Disney's Old Key West Resort. Mimi was a people person with a great personality. Most of all, Mimi will be remembered as being a dedicated mother.
