Minnie was an antique dealer even in her mid 90-s, selling me a rocking chair from the Leary and Fullerton law office. She was gracious enough to tell me information about my Delay family and the Donohue relatives on Franklin Street. She even asked what business my grandfather Edward Vincent Delay was in, and he had passed away in 1953. I admired the curiosity. She told me to drink the revived Saratoga Vichy water sold by Stewarts. I always will and I brought her some bottles. When I did not get a Christmas card from her in December 2017, I had a feeling something was missing. I appreciated the fine postcard collection she showed me. She taught me the proper pronunciation of Abenaki. She remarked how her entire career she had only boss: Judge Michael Sweeney. However, since he went to war in WWII, for those years, her boss was James A. Leary, of which she related many facts and remembrances. She told me "Uncle Jim" cut her and Mike Sweeney out of the will because he ran for judge. I will miss Minnie.

Our sincerest condolences to Minnie's family, friends and beneficiaries of her boundless energy, knowledge and enthusiasm for her beloved Saratoga and all things historical. We had the good fortune to meet due to a mutual interest in antique postcards but we continued to be amazed with her additional talents as an author, as well. A contact with Minnie left one with a smile....May your memories serve to comfort you at this difficult time.

Minnie was a great friend who enjoyed sharing her knowledge and showing her collection of Saratoga Springs. She was a great listener as well, even when we weren't talking about Saratoga. She will be missed.

Minnie Bolster was a gracious, unselfish person who devoted her life to enshrining the history of our city way back before everyone but her thought it would become a ghost town. She remembered everything about every piece of memorabilia she collected, and did not discriminate , if an article mentioned Saratoga, she kept it. This made her archives really valuable for research. Many other people dealt in Saratoga Memorabilia, but only Minnie kept one of everything and only sold duplicates so she could buy more one of a kind items. But the important thing was her willingness to share knowledge. When I went to her home to attend to her clocks, she would give me a complete tour of her collection. I found out years ago that she was able to tell me the names of the old hotels on clocks I collected that predated 1840. I was about to call her again when I heard about her passing and I give my heartfelt condolences to her family, that were so precious to her, she loved all of them but especially her nieces who went antiquing with her.
