She enjoyed ballroom dancing for pleasure and in local competitions and attending the theatre and concerts. Mireille was an all-out fan of Oklahoma State University football.

Mireille cherished her home, her cats and time spent with her family and friends.

Her laughter was infectious, taking only a short time before everyone was helpless with their own laughter. She will be deeply missed.
