    So sorry to hear about your Mom. I can remember running through her shop at your house. Great memories
    of growing up in a small town. Your family will be in our prayers.

    My sincere condolences to the family. I knew Jean, Patsy, and Joyce better than Minnie’s family but always found Minnie to be exciting and beautiful. May you all find peace and acceptance. Audrey Hurdle

    I am so sorry to hear of Minnie's death. What a beautiful woman I remember inside and out. I spent many times at her house with June Love when we were young. The entire family was so welcoming and kind. I am thinking of you. Judy and Keith it has been years but special memories.
    Love,

    Minnie gave me my first job which led me to going to beautician school. She taught me how to handle difficult people. She treated everyone with love. I'm sorry for the families loss. Love to Earl, Everette, Keith, June Love and Kent and all of the grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

    This is a beautiful picture of Minnie who was a beautiful person, physically and personally. It was always good to talk with Minnie, and she made you feel better. She made the best pies. May God hold her and her precious family in his loving arms.

    Much love and sympathy,
    Rick and Weezie Rawlings
