I am so sorry for your loss. My mother, Faye Haueter, worked with Minnie for many years and considered her a good friend.

Mom passed away in 2017 and I miss her everyday. I understand what you are going through.

Minnie was my mother’s best friend from child hood, and we looked at her as an aunt. We were in and out of her house constantly while growing up. She walked in life thru Christ her entire life. We loved her dearly.
