Mabel L. “Micky” Passini

Mabel L. “Micky” Passini, age 97, of Middleton, joined her husband and family in heaven on Friday, June 23, 2017. She was born on Feb. 6, 1920, in Lake Villa, Ill., the daughter of Hugh and Elizabeth (Plotz) McCann. Micky led her life here on earth with an amazing spirit and strength that could be seen through her Irish eyes. Her quiet dedication and devotion to all she did could be witnessed through her 38 years of work at Gimbels/Marshall Fields, her unmatched cooking and baking, the Irish and Italian traditions she carried on with her family, and her close following of her family’s sports and activities. Micky met the love of her life, Satimo “Pat” Passini, at a dance and married him on Oct. 11, 1941. They continued to dance their way through life until Satimo’s passing on June 17, 2000. Micky is survived by her children and their families, Patrick (Marilyn) Passini (Mitch and Mona), James (Lyn) Passini (Todd), Michael (Myleen) Passini (Emi, Mika, Kenji, Lia), Timothy (Sara) Passini (Maya), Kathleen (John) Simon (Kyle, Kayla, Kodey); 16 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; and brothers, Joe, Earl and Howard McCann.
