Mickey Dumas, of Mora, passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, at her home on January 25, 2012. She was 58 years old.
Mickey was born on May 13, 1953 in Hopkins, MN to Kenneth and Dorothy (Chandler) Dumas. She was the youngest of ten children. Mickey attended St. Margaret’s Catholic High School in Minneapolis graduating in 1971.
After completing high school, Mickey worked at several different jobs including Tonka Toys in Mound, MN. In the mid-1980s, Mickey fulfilled a life-long dream when she purchased a small farm near Mora. She lived out her life on that farm. Mickey’s hobbies were crafting, quilting, photography and reading. Over the years, her dogs were her constant companions. Her dogs, Lydia, Jake and Zoe made Mickey’s life richer. They were as special to her as children. However, it was Mickey’s family and friends that were the center of her life. Even when she could not be near the ones she loved, Mickey was faithful to keep in touch with phone calls and cards. She was dearly loved and will be missed by all who knew her.
Mickey is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Chief; nephews: Tom Dunsmore, Jimmie Skaalerud, and Steven Dumas; niece, Jayne Dumas.
Mickey is survived by siblings: Pat (LeRoy) Schwartz, Barb Romine, Kathleen (Jim) Skaalerud, Bunny (Irv) Dunsmore, Suzie (Rick) Glodek, Steve (Jean) Dumas, Dorothy (Paul) Swanson and Bill (Ivy) Dumas, and nephew: Adam (Jodi) Dunsmore of Mora. Many other nieces and nephews, greats and great-greats too numerous to name also survive – each and every one was a dear gift to Mickey.
