Mackie was an avid tennis player & golfer & loved to socialize with her family & friends. She was an accomplished hostess & you never left her house hungry. Mackie turned her tennis ‘hobby’ into a real career. She managed the St. Paul Indoor Tennis club for many years & helped launch the Arden Hills and Eagandale Tennis clubs. If you played tennis in St. Paul in the last 40 years, there’s a very good chance you knew Mackie.
Mackie was also a talented watercolorist and was always up for playing bridge.
