Ms. Dorether Mingo, daughter of the late Arthur and Hattie Mingo -

Dorether was a very Loving Mother,Grandmother, Sister and Friend.

We all miss her beautiful smile, and joyful laughter,

She never turned anyone away from her table, or her heart.

She would welcome you into her home and give you godly wisdom,

when you left her home you knew you were Loved.

She knew what it meant to Serve!

And she did it with a cheerful and unselfish heart.

We Cherish your Memories Mother and you will be forever Missed!!

"I remember visits with my Aunt at the old house when I was a little girl and as a teenager. She made me feel so special just as if I was her daughter and not her niece. I miss her sweet personality and wise sayings.  She told me something that's proving it self to me now. I was about 30 something and complained of my knee hurting and she said just wait til you get my age and get up in the morning walking like a hog in hi-heel shoes. I loved her then and love her even more now. R.I.P.  WITH ALL YOUR SISTERS AND BROTHERS WITH YOU IN YOUR NEW HOME."

"My Grandma has been a great source of inspiration for me through my life. Til this day I still quote some of her sayings and remember all of our talks. I admired so many attributes that grandma possessed. She would sacrifice for the family is/was one if her strongest attributes. If people in this world could take a page out her book and be half the person she is/was, I believe this world would be a better place."
