Obituary

Minnie Ozina WillaMae Melvin Armstrong

Said to be given 3 middle names because she was such a beautiful baby, and people wanted her to share their name, Minnie Jones was born July 16, 1919. She was one of fifteen children born to Azzie and Amanda Jones of Jefferson County, AR.

Minnie spent some time living in Memphis, TN and worked for Hotel Peabody. She later moved to Pine Bluff, AR and met Charlie James Armstrong. They were married on December 23, 1944. In 1948 they moved to Grand Rapids, MI to pursue better employment opportunities. They both worked for American Seating. To this union a daughter was born, Eunice Elizabeth Armstrong at which time Minnie became a Homemaker.

As she would often tell the story, Minnie was “converted” at the young age of 12 and served the Lord faithfully until he called her home. At the time of her death, she had been a devoted member of Messiah Missionary Baptist Church, where she served many years until she was unable.

Minnie went home to be with the Lord peacefully in her sleep on Monday, June 8, 2020. Minnie joins her parents, husband, daughter, and siblings in heaven. She’s survived by her Granddaughter, Tiesha (Robert) Frazier and one great-grandson who she truly adored Robert Deon Frazier Jr. (DJ), as well as many nieces, nephews, and special family.

Minnie lived a purposeful 100 years on earth, loving everyone she could, making sure people were fed, and always putting family first. She loved to sing so much that she belonged to a quartet in her 20’s. She’d often be heard singing and praying any time you were near her. She loved eating Kentucky Fried Chicken, pound cake, and drinking apple juice. She will be greatly missed but has most certainly found her reward in heaven with the Lord.

Mother Minnie Armstrong was truly an Awesome Woman of God! She sung with my mother in a Gospel Group called Holy Wonders. I remember when she lived on Lafayette Street and I lived on Cass Street. She always was uplifting. Take your Rest, For your Labour was not in Vain! Pastor Jeffrey Cummings-Wyoming, Michigan.
