MIA “TURTLE” MAMIARO August 19, 2004 - May 30, 2016

Southaven, MS –

MIA “TURTLE” MAMIARO, 11, was born August 19, 2004 in Southaven, MS and passed away May 30, 2016. She had just finished the 6th grade at Southaven Elementary School and due to a recent move, was looking forward to starting the 7th grade at DeSoto Central in the fall. Mia enjoyed shopping, eating, making bath soaps, and gymnastics. On April 5, 2014, she established her own YouTube channel titled “MakeupByMia 19.” Each week she would record, edit, and post videos of everything from makeup tips to what she got for Christmas and Valentines Day. She gave her subscribers a glimpse of who she was and made them smile in the process, always ending each video with “I love you guys so so much…Bye”. She loved all animals. Her cat, DJ, appeared in several of her YouTube videos. Mia had a heart of gold and an amazing personality. We will miss her goofy faces that always made everyone laugh. She is survived by her mother, Marketa Mamiaro; father, Art Mamiaro; and sister, Nikki Mamiaro. There will be a service to celebrate Mia’s life on Tuesday, June 7, 2016 at 1 p.m. at Getwell Road United Methodist Church, 7875 Getwell Road in Southaven. A private graveside service will follow at DeSoto Memorial Gardens in Southaven. Marketa has requested that everyone please try to wear Mia’s favorite colors, which are white, gold, and black. White and gold are preferred, instead of black, since we are celebrating an amazing life that touched so many in such a short time.

    Milá Markéto a Nikki, je mi moc líto ztráty vaší dcerky, sestry, kamarádky Mii. O to víc mě bolí, že se to stalo na den mých narozenin. Doufám, že tam, kde je teď Mia, je fajn. :-* Denisa

    Milá Markétko, s velkým zármutkem jsem si na FB přečetla co Tě potkalo. Upřímnou soustrast, je mi to nesmírně líto a moc dobře vím, že žádná slova nedokážou zmírnit Tvůj zármutek. Já sama jsem tragicky přišla o devítiletou dcerku a moc dobře vím, jak se v tuto chvíli cítíš. Přeji Tobě i Niki hodně sil do dalšího života. Moc vás obě zdravím ze Zděchova, Eva Kučná – maminka od Tvé spolužačky Moniky Válkové
