Remembering Mitzi Bault

By Ralph Waggener

My niece Mitzi Bault passed yesterday after 25 hard fault years of that evil Cancer! Mitzi has been told several times that she only had a couple of weeks or months to live, yet she had the stamina and will to live!

Never have I witnessed a person with such a drive as this little lady, I say little in stature but big in heart and the drive of a great war general! Her husband Ricky has been by her side throughout all of this and he has to be close to sainthood for all he has done!

Mitzi found her way when she decided she wanted to work for herself and has had several businesses, one most notable was Mitsi's on the Square! She ran a day care business for many years and owned several rental properties. She and I went to Indianapolis to check on my sister Jean who was having a stint put into her neck and on that trip I learned more about her business savvy than I thought she had.

She just had a head for business that I would consider very good to say the least! She, like me, did not have much or any collage but she must have had a lot of good people around her teaching her the in's and out's of business.

I know being in business is not for everyone, it ain't! I knew I would work for myself at a very young age but it took be several tries to find the right business and sure she had to grow into her own roll as a business Woman.

She is to be admired for her work effort, her kindness, and love of all people! Oh, I gatta add DOGS!
