We were sad to hear of Minnie's passing, but happy that it is in the context of her knowing and being taken care of by God. We will remember her as such a nice Christian woman. God Bless her family. -Cheryl and Joan Harding

To David and Grace, Richard and Kathy, and families:

As you know, 'Mrs O' offered her services to provide child care for our first daughter - that started a very special relationship with our family as she cared for our girls for a few years. She continued to take a great interest in them and us after she 'retired'. She was a wonderful Vienna Street neighbour and friend to many as well as to us. She will not be forgotten. Our sympathies are with you all.

Our family met Minnie and Don when they first came to Halifax when Richard was a baby. Minnie became active in the Sunday School department and was always faithful and supportive. She cared about people, listened to their concerns, and always gave support. She was every inch a lady, gracious and kind, and will be remembered fondly.
