Mamie was 2 years old when her mother Marie passed away, after that time she was raised by her "Nanna and Dadda". She lived across from Isles Park during her younger years, enjoyed playing there and sports in the neighborhood. That park is where she met her future husband Richard Casher.

Mack, doing whatever was required at his home from cleaning to being a nanny for his youngest daughter Chrissy. Mamie was an incredibly hard worker, a tenacious individual, a compassionate, loving mother and loyal to all those who befriended her. She was an avid reader, loved crossword puzzles, cooking and baking for her family, gardening and in her later years going on short trips with her neighbor Jim and simply speaking with her longest friend Betty, and her daughter in law Flor. She was also grateful for being taken care of so well by the staff of Seven to Heaven and Magic Nails during her final years; they treated her like family. She was adored and will be deeply missed.
