Minnie graduated from Alton High School and remained in the Alton area and worked here her entire life. She retired as manager from Computer Science Corporation, formerly Midwest Accounts.
Minnie was a very sharp and kind businesswoman and many of her employees still would call and come and visit her until the very end of her life. One of her caregivers said during one of those visits that she had never heard so much laughter from the entire group. Those visits were always the highlight of her day.
Thank you to the caregivers who took excellent care of Minnie. You were all a gift from God in keeping Minnie in her home and to BJC Hospice.
Minnie and George enjoyed trips with their friends and working in their yard as well as spending time with their grandkids.
She was preceded in death by her parents and step-father Louis Perica, sister and brother-in-law Willie and Tom Pierson, granddaughter, Dena Kidder, and daughter-in-law Barbara.
Minne donated her body to science, so there will be no services.
