Miriam Lucille “Mimii” Walton, 62

Miriam Lucille “Mimii” Walton, 62, of Burlington, Ky. passed away peacefully at Good Samaritan Hospital on Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2021. Mimii was born in Wabash on Oct. 28, 1958 to her parents Robert and Margaret (Futrell) Bigger. 

During her life, Mimii earned an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Development and worked for Volunteers of America as a Direct Service Provider for disabled clients. She attended Florence United Methodist Church, volunteered at soup kitchens, and did mission work on a Navajo Reservation and in Haiti, all of which held an important place in her heart. She loved spending time with her grandkids and exploring new places. Her favorite trips included traveling to Lake Michigan, watching the sunset, putting her toes in the sandy beaches, and walking the pier to the lighthouse. Her favorite memories revolve around her family, and she loved to reminisce while discovering new restaurants. She had a way of making everyone laugh and her smile lit up the room.
