Minnie was born August 12, 1927 in Sikes, LA and passed away November 17, 2019 in Coushatta, LA. She was a beautician and an Air Force wife. She made many friends during her life and cherished each one of them. Minnie loved to work outside. Nothing made her happier than digging in the dirt around her many flowers. She loved listening to crickets at night. Even though she lived in places from Florida to Japan during her life, she always loved Martin best. She loved her church and as long as she was able, attended every Sunday. Minnie was a special person who never met a stranger. She is singing with the angels now.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Reginald T. Snead.
Left to cherish her memories are her daughter, Ann Gatti and husband, Carl of Scott, LA; son, Danny Snead and wife, Jody of Martin, LA; granddaughter, Carla Ingram and husband, Stacy of Lafayette, LA; grandson, C. J. Gatti III of Lafayette, LA; great grandchildren, Dakota, Gentry, Caelee, Colton, and Cullen.
Pallbearers will be David Adkins, Kevin Robinette, Paul Hillman, Andy Long, Mike Jeter, and C. J. Gatti III.
Memorials may be made to the Martin Baptist Church Music Fund. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Gavin Chico and the nurses and staff of Christus Coushatta for the love and excellent care given to their momma while she was hospitalized.
