They began raising their cherished daughters there before moving to Little Ferry in 1965. Mickey was an amazing wife and mother while also working for over 30 years at Goldberg's Slipper Factory. Mickey was loved by her family, friends, and just about anyone that had the pleasure of spending time with her.
