She graduated from A.S. Clark High School in Cordele, Georgia. She played basketball, ran track and was part of a dance group. Minnie was picked to be a backup dancer for the Godfather of Soul James Brown. Unfortunately, her father did not go for that.
In 1972, Minnie moved to Los Angeles, California. On May 26, 1984 she married the love of her life, Raymond Williams. They shared 36 years of everlasting love. As a virtuous woman of God, Minnie gave her life to Christ as a young age. She joined Magnolia Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles where she sang as a soprano in the choir.
Minnie was an avid sports fan but a Laker fanatic. She loved Kobe Bryant. She was a manager at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California and would not let the opportunity pass by for anyone needing employment. She always looked out for anyone in need of a job. In 2002, Minnie retired from Warner Bros. Studios and relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada.
Minnie embodied the word love. Her light was bright to all in her presence. Her laugh was distinct. She was the life of the party. She could look into your eyes and see your soul. She would always speak of the good in people. These are true accounts of the total love she really carried. She connected to everyone including nieces and nephews. A true prayer warrior.
Although she worked at Warner Bros., she should have worked at Disneyland because she made dreams come true. There are many words to describe her but, one that is used would be consistent. She stayed the same to all and was true on her word. Minnie loved her family. If she was not hosting a party, she was driving or flying to one. Looking back, she was always making memories. If you wanted to see her light up, have one of her grandchildren walk in the room. God sent us an angel!
On Monday, December 14, 2020, God called His angel home.
