Cathy Anita Minter, 72, of Sandersville, Georgia, (Formerly of Cartersville, Georgia) went to be with Jesus on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, at the Redmond Regional Hospital, after a brief illness. Born in Cobb County, Kennesaw, GA, she lived all but one year of her life in Georgia. She was proud to be called a “Georgia Girl”.
She became a Christian at an early age and was involved in teaching Sunday School and Children’s Ministries for many years. She had a deep love for children and many children were positively influenced by her teaching and care. She was nicknamed “The Candy Lady” at different churches where she volunteered because she would reward children with candy, after church, as a positive reinforcement for good behavior. She was a beautiful soul who loved unconditionally. She was a dutiful and loving Daughter, Sister, Aunt and Friend. She loved to crochet and shared her beautiful creations as gifts to family and friends. Cathy worked for 26 plus years and retired from the State of Georgia Revenue Department. She enjoyed light gardening, really loved playing board games and putting puzzles together with her nieces and nephews, but especially loved going fishing with her family.
