Minnie Lee was a homemaker and worked on the family farm. Minnie Lee loved to help and serve others. She was dedicated to her faith in the Lord, love for her husband, and making others happy. She unselfishly took care of her in-laws in their home for many years along with baking and cooking for all. Her day ended with a smile when the table was full of her home cooking along with family and friends to share it. She was extremely talented in her fine seamstress work on anything from quilts and dresses to the most extreme Maifest costumes. A game of dominoes was also a favorite pastime. She truly loved being with her family and friends and we know she is smiling once again in her reunion with her sweetheart, Earl.
