Minnie was born in Camden on August 6, 1934, and spent her early life in Waterford, NJ. She left school to go to work at Kessler Clothing Factory in Hammonton. She married Joe on May 28, 1955, and moved to Vineland.
Her family was most important to her, she was involved in whatever her children and then grandchildren were interested in. She was the ultimate homemaker and took pride in cooking, baking, gardening, and taking care of her family.
She went on to work as a baker and cashier in the Franklin Township school system; where she loved interacting and sharing her talent with the children. Her retirement years were spent mostly at home where she and Joe were the happiest with their family. She never showed up as a guest empty handed, her cheesecakes and "roll ups" were always a favorite.
She moved to Allegria at the Fountains in Atco after a fall at home in January. The family is grateful for the compassion and care that she received during that time.
