She went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, Aug. 11, 2012, after a short bout with cancer in Vitas Hospital in Milwaukee, Wis. God's words assures of this, "to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord" (2 Cor. 5:8).

Minnie grew up in Kennett, and graduated from Kennett High School in 1972.

She was an employee for Blue Cross and Blue Shield for five years, worked for Metropolis Life Insurance Company for 20 years, and worked for Master Lock for seven years.

Minnie was also a member of Holy Redeemer Institutional COGIC in Milwaukee. Minnie is also described as a strong woman of faith who was very organized and dedicated to the Lord's people. She loved to serve when needed to aid in the church ministry. Minnie loved to sing gospel music and play her guitar and write gospel plays. Minnie also loved to decorate her home for the holidays. She had a love of Christmas movies along with her collection of Charlie Brown tapes. Her love for God and her family were evident in her daily life.

She was preceded in death by her mother and father, and one sister, Patricia Duckworth.

She leaves to cherish her memory three sisters, Mary Love and Earlene Green, both of Milwaukee, and Janice Cooper, of Kennett; two brothers, Isiah Love (Jackie) of Gosnell, Ark., and David Love, of West Memphis, Ark., and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
