My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Miinie. May God comfort and strengthen you during this time because He cares for uou. 1 Peter 5:6,7

I was so sorry to hear of Minnie's today. I was at the Mountain View Cemetery and saw her grave site. She was lovely and wonderful and always have a kind word for me.

Minnie was a good friend & a wonderful lady!

I can't mourn her passing; only celebrate her beautiful life. The lasting memories can totally consume my thoughts.
Visiting with you...Judy, Allen, and "Donnie" yesterday, gave a glimpse of the types of "Reunion" we can anticipate...which your Mother now is enjoying.
A very beautiful service and celebration of your Mother!!

What an amazing lady Minnie was! Heaven sure welcomed an angel. She will be greatly missed by all!

Minnie was an exceptional loving woman. We will miss her dearly! She touched everyone that she met. I only knew her a short time, but she always made me feel like she was my family. I considered her my grandmother. Tyson and I will miss all of the yummy fudge, cookies and pickles! Sending all of our love!! Wish we could have been there today to celebrate such an amazing woman and the wonderful life she had!

The world has lost a beautiful woman. She was always the best friend a person could ever know. I will miss her and the influence she had on my life. She really liked to "mother" people. Best wishes to her family. Minnie will make any place she is a better place than it was ever before. Christine Nelson

Minnie was working for Extension when I was hired. She was one of my guiding lights as a new agent. She was an inspiration to children, leaders and agents. When she judged it was always a great experience for every child. There will not be another like her and she will be greatly missed. Her legacy, however, will live with those of us who knew her forever. Janice Stimpson

Aunt Minnie's delectable desserts!! I remember when I asked for her cream puff recipe, she said she'd show me how. Instead of showing me, she had ME make them on the spot! I've shared her recipe and that story with my family members. Heart of gold...
