Methel Lee McMinn

February 7, 1926 — December 9, 2019

Methel Lee McMinn, 93, a resident of Ricohoc, passed away peacefully Monday, December 9, 2019 at Franklin Foundation Hospital surrounded by her loving family.

Methel was born on February 7, 1926 in Tuscumbia, Alabama the daughter of Floyd Isbell and Ruth Wemes Isbell.

Methel spent much of her time in the kitchen, as cooking was her passion and she loved to cook for anyone. When she wasn’t cooking she was playing cards or dominos at the kitchen table with friends and family, and somehow she always left the table as the winner.

She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by eight children, Nellie Spell of Buna, Texas, Peggy Moore of Colbert, Georgia, Faye Friar of Bayou Vista, William “Sonny” Hatley of Blytheville, Arkansas, Wanda Gilbert of Comanche, Texas, Tommy “Butch” Hatley of Hamilton, Texas, Larry “Shorty” Hatley of Comanche, Texas, Jody McMinn of Ricohoc; numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren; two brothers, Percy Ellis Isbell and Bobby Jo Isbell; three sisters, Louise Smith, Delois Isbell and Reba Flannigan. 

Methel was preceded in death by her parents, Floyd and Ruth Wemes Isbell; six children, Betty Jo Wolford, Shirley Ann Hatley, Mary Louise Brown, Bonnie Shaw, Dorothy Thornton and Johnny McMinn.

Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 12, 2019 at Twin City Funeral Home with a visitation being held from 11:00 a.m. until the time of the services. Following the services, Methel will be laid to rest in the Teche Garden Cemetery in Centerville.
