John, sorry for your loss. She was an amazing teacher and I learned a great deal in her class when I took her class all 3 years. She had a kind heart and a great personality. Truly one of a kind.

I remember Minnie from Union High Schools days. She was a friend and a sweet, kind lady. Her adorable smile could change a dark, bleak day into sunshine. I always remembered her even though 3,000 miles separated our families. I received a wonderful letter from her months ago, and I’m happy we were able to communicate once again before her death. She is at home now in God’s loving arms. Blessings to her family and all those you loved her.

My deepest sympathy, going out to her husband, John. Also to the rest of her family. Mrs. Jones, was my French teacher at John Marshall. She was one of the nicest people, one could ever meet. Her and John, came through my checkout line, at Walmart. I will definitely miss Mrs. Jones. Rest In Peace. God Bless. ❤️
