Mindee was an incredibly talented florist for over 25 years and brought light and love to everyone around her. She loved crafting, shopping, seafood, music (especially 80’s), spending time with her family and friends and made and gave gifts to all she knew. Becoming a grandma to twins in August of 2019 was also one of her best memories. She loved animals, especially her dog Riley as well as his sisters Dee Dee and Tallia. She was an extremely positive influence and a beacon of strength in many people’s lives and touched the heart of so many with her kindness, generosity, faith and testimony in the Lord Jesus Christ and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Ray & Voneal: My heart is breaking because I cannot be there with you. I loved the picture of Mindee in the pink dress & the beautifful dark curls. This is the way I remember Mindee. I remember spending time with you when she came down for the summer games here in Cedar. It was so fun. We have had such a close relationship all of our lives, & it tears me up that I cant be there for you today. Remember the peace that will come to you & Ray. You are good parents and now Mindee is free of the pain she has been in for so many years. Remember, I love you both.
