Obituary: Leotta Mae “Lee” Minix

Leotta Mae “Lee” Minix, age 78, of Stockbridge, MI, passed away on Monday, June 27, 2022, at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, MI.

Lee was born on March 10, 1944, in Enoch, West Virginia, to George and Ona (Brady) Ramsey. She lived in the Stockbridge area for 51 years and was a member of the Jeruel Baptist Church in Munith.

Also surviving are three children: Lisa (Troy) Wester of Wildwood, MO, Andrea Aiken of Stockbridge, and Chad (Christy) Minix of Stockbridge; six grandchildren, Abigail Wester, Alivia Wester, Ally Minix, Riley Aiken, Travis Aiken, and Zac Minix; her brother, Delmis J. Ramsey of Brighton, and sister, Linda Lou (Jeff) Hime of Pinckney. She was preceded in death by her parents and 10 of her siblings.
