I have great memories of eating lunch with Mrs. Minter at the Summit and Palmetto Clubs. With both of us being from Chesterfield County, we would share the weekly Cheraw Chronicle and other news of things about Chesterfield and Cheraw. Beverly Drive in Cheraw was named for her. I have missed seeing her. Sincere sympathy to her family.
