Aunt Minnie will be remembered by us for her genuine kindness, and also her love for family and friends. She had a laugh that was all her own and real. She was small in stature, but huge in the memories she uniquely leaves with each of us.
Thank you Aunt Minnie! God bless!🙏💕🙏

Minnie was our neighbor for many years. My husband mowed her lawn and enjoyed visiting with her. We were sad when she moved out of the neighborhood. We had some good laughs as we helped her move and she shared her memories of living there. She was such a caring friend. Christmas will be different without her canister of popcorn and box of chocolate.
Our prayers and love to the family.
