Minnette was very kind to us when we arrived in St. L and my
late husband Bernard taught their son.
I remember her kindness and send my condolences to the family.

Minette was a person my Mother, Lalie Rich, loved very much at Brookdale. My Mother was totally deaf in her last years and Minette always t reated my Mother as a total person, which most people did not, because she could not hear. I loved talking with Minette whenever I saw her. She was so bright, so with it, so friendly, so genuine. There were few people that won my Mother's confidence and Minette was the one at Brookdale. Minette touched my heart, too. I miss her.
May you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

I first met Minette when I visited my sister at Brookdale, Creve Coeur. Sometimes she sat at our table in the Buffet at dinner time and I loved my conversations with her. Like me, she loved conversations that could leisurely wander from memories, to politics, then to music, and also literature. I regret that I never met her two daughters who live in the East or her son who lives here, but I want them all to know how much I enjoyed and cherished Minette. I would have loved to meet her husband, as well, but he was deceased by the time our friendship began. She retained curiosity about life and people until the very end. One of her greatest pleasures was her dear friend who lives in Clayton, whose name I don't know. Rest in peace, Minette. Your memory will be a blessing to us.
