Defying an adulterous husband at age 55, Marie “Mimi” Haist sought a better life, and ended up on the streets of Los Angeles. At age 70 Mimi found her way to a Santa Monica Laundromat where she has lived for 18 years. Mimi’s ‘the past is the past’ philosophy endeared her to regular fluff and fold clients and, after more than 20 years, Mimi has made some unlikely friends, ranging from local loves to Hollywood A-listers Zach Galifianakis and Renee Zellweger. -JM
