Obituary Image



Was born on the south side of Indianapolis and celebrated her 100th birthday last July 10th.  She was married to Stanley Werner, who passed away on Oct. 28, 1990, while they lived in Sarasota, FL.  Ironically, Mimi passed away on what would have been their 74th wedding anniversary.  After Stanley’s death, Mimi moved back to Indianapolis and began working at Hooverwood, managing the Guild office until her retirement at 88.  An avid Maj Jong player, Mimi also loved cooking for friends and family, especially for the holidays.  She will be remembered for her extraordinary memory, her quick wit and sense of humor.  Besides her husband she was preceded in death by her brothers, Alex and Moe Bernstein, sisters, Dolly Herman, Bae Cohen, Molly Reiter and several loving nieces and nephews.  Mimi is survived by her daughters, Sandi Werner and Judy Ries.  The family wishes to thank and acknowledge the incredible staff and devoted caregivers at Traditions at North Willow and her personal aide Caroline for taking such great care of her, especially these last few months.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Shelly Shane Social Action fund c/o Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation (www.ihcindy.org) or a charity of choice.
