Mickie attended Lincoln Northeast High School. After High School she attended a business college to become a court reporter. That pursuit was put on hold while her children were young. Once all three children were in school full time she began her work outside of the home.

During that time she attended and graduated from the Omaha Bartenders School. She worked briefly in several bars in the Lincoln area. Eventually she gave up bar-tending for a day job with Lincoln Parks and Recreation as a Recreational Aide/Office Assistant where she worked until her retirement. Mickie loved her family, traveling and fly fishing.
She is survived by her children, Lynne (Bob) Jackowiak, of Omaha, Mike Price, of Lincoln, Jeff (Vicki Nightingale) Price, of Lincoln, step children, Angela (Randal) Henes, of Madison, WI., Matthew Ames, of Alvarado, TX., brother, Stephen McMullen, of San Diego, CA., seven grandchildren and nine great grandchildren, niece and nephews, and great nieces and nephews.
