Our heartfelt sympathy and love go out to you all and may y’all find comfort in knowing those who loved the Lord as our dear Aunt Minnie did, will love forever in Heaven, as her memory lives forever in our hearts. We were blessed to have had such a loving, kind, so thoughtful and hard working woman for an Aunt. Father Keith done a very heartfelt sermon for her at the beautiful Cathedral, everything he said was so Aunt Minnie, he knew her well, when he said she was a prayer warrior. She has a front seat in Heaven and now y’all have an angel, y’all can call momma. May you Rest In Peace now, Aunt Minnie in your Heavenly Home, with all our loved ones who await you. This goodbye is not the end, it means we will miss you😪until we meet again.🙏🏻🙏🏻

Aunt Minnie was always one of my favorite aunts and I always loved going to their house, especially to play with Gil and Dennis. Aunt Minnie was always so happy and she always made me feel welcomed and loved.
It breaks my heart that at the time of her passing, the covid virus has many people second guessing large gatherings.
It is my prayer that the Lord sends His Angels to Minister to those who loved Aunt Minnie so deeply, and wrap Their loving wings around them, to help heal their hearts and always keep the beautiful memories they cherish so deeply, very near.
May God Bless and keep you all in His loving care!

With Love,
Christine Quebodeaux "Bee"

We were neighbors for almost 30 years on Lincoln Rd. Minnie was always smiling and such a good person. She was a great steward of God and a great example for many. Rest in peace, Minnie, your work is done.

Rest In Peace Mom. She loved all of us that became part of her life with y’all. Bonfires, riding Lady and helping feed Clotile, watching Brandon’s face light up while one of y’all are pulling him around the field with Lady, and her hollering for y’all to behave and get along. Can’t express how sorry Keith and I are. Prayers for all the family. Gonna miss seeing her at church. Love you Ms Minnie !😘
