Mickey spent her early childhood years in Harvard, Nebraska and then moved to Franklin, Nebraska following the deaths of her parents to live with her sister and husband, Aileen and Harold Goedert. Mickey graduated from the Franklin High School with the class of 1950.

They made their home in the Riverton community where Mickey served as the Riverton Postmistress until her retirement. In the early 1990’s they moved to Red Cloud to make their home.

Mickey was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and the ladies Altar Society. In her spare time she was an avid reader and always enjoyed her trips downtown to have coffee with her friends. A passionate and dedicated sports fan, she especially cherished the years they traveled to watch their grandchildren’s athletic activities.
