Mamie Sime was born June 9, 1906 in Story County, Iowa, to Norwegian immigrants Annie M. Marlens and Paul F. Pederson. She had two siblings, Obid M. Pederson and Pearl I. Pederson Bielefeldt. She married Telmer Sime and they raised an adopted daughter, Judith. Mamie doted on her grandson, Tony.

Telmer Sime passed away in 1973.

On March 31, 1981, a fire broke out in Mamie's home on the outskirts of Rolfe, Iowa. Authorities first believed Mamie had died in the fire, but an autopsy concluded she had died of stab wounds and the fire was deliberately set in an effort to destroy the evidence.

Mamie was buried next to Telmer in the Clinton Garfield Cemetery. Mamie's murder remains unsolved.
