Minnie loved working in her garden and sharing bookmarks, cards, and pictures that she created with flowers she dried and pressed herself. She loved spending time researching family history, sharing family photos, and taking pictures of everyone and everything. Most of all she loved collecting glassware, Minnie Mouse memorabilia, and attending/hosting yard sales. She will be greatly missed and always cherished as the strong loving woman everyone knew her as.
