Remembering Super Volunteer Sue Minter
The NOMMA family grieves the loss of Sue Minter, 68, of Imagine Ironworks/B&O Machine & Welding, who passed January 11. The wife of James Minter Jr., Sue was a hard-working volunteer at METALfab events and served as hostess for the spouse program for four years. She will always be remembered for the painting class that she and Maxine Minter organized, which was always a big hit at the conference. In addition, she and her husband James were enthusiastic participants of the Buddy System and did a fantastic job of making new attendees feel welcome.
In addition to helping with the family business, Sue had a long and interesting career that covered teaching, banking, and journalism. She was a writer as well, and published a book. In her free time, her great passion was the arts, and she was founder and president of the Brookhaven Regional Arts Guild. She had a long history of performing with the Brookhaven Little Theatre and was also involved in many community nonprofit groups.
Among the survivors are her husband, James Minter Jr., son Walker, and mother-in-law Maxine Minter. Funeral services will be Sunday at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Brookhaven. Visitation begins at 1 p.m. with a reception to honor her life immediately after the service at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Brookhaven Trust, the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, the Willing Hearts Circle, or the International Order of King’s Daughters and Sons.
