Minke, Grace Lydia Clara

October 8, 1922 – February 28, 2020
at the age of 97 years

Born October 8, 1922 Waterloo Ontario, died February 28, 2020 Salmon Arm B.C. at the age of 97 years.
She was the daughter of Lily and Eldon Miller and sister to Douglas. 

Predeceased by her husband Reverend Wallace Minke, and daughter Faith (Faye) Gmeterick and survived by sons Douglas and David, daughter Carolynne (Lynne) Tate and Ron, grandson James Pickering, Katie, great grandsons Kyle and Sam.

She was devoted to her Church and as a clergy’s spouse, Grace helped serve in many communities in both Nova Scotia and Ontario. Grace was also very involved with the Girl Guides Association.  Her guidance to young women was recognized with numerous certificates of achievement.

In her retirement years, Grace was the consummate traveller. Tackling the steep steps of Chichen Itza in Mexico or scrambling over the rocks of Patmos, Greece her energy was surprising to many.

We would like to thank Dr. Amy Megyesi and the staff at Piccadilly Care Centre for their very kind care.

Grace has joined her beloved Wally and will be interned in the family plot in Sullivan Township in Ontario later this year.

In lieu of flowers a donation could be made to the Alzheimer’s Society.
