Patty and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I loved Aunt Minnie very much. What a sweet, funny, funny, lady. She did so much for me when I lived with Gramma (Dot). She loved me for who I was, she never tried to change me. She encouraged me, listened to me, and understood me. If it were not for her, my father would never have gotten saved.
We lost touch when I moved back to NJ and the distance only got worst when I Gramma died and I moved to SC. Patty, and the rest of her children meant the world to her. Her grandbabies, were her life.
Again, I am so sorry for your loss, my world is a little duller today knowing she is no longer on earth.

Pat and family. So sorry for your loss. I have great memories spending time with your family as a child. Loved homemade ice cream on Saturday nights but hated the churning. Cherish your memories. May God bring peace and comfort to you all. Pat Hubler

Everyone who attended the Freer Reunion always enjoyed Minnie & Bucky's company. She was a great auctioneer for the 'White Elephant Sales.' She will always be missed! So sorry to hear. She is happily telling family stories with her loved ones now.
