Minor_Joan.jpgFlorence “Joan” Minor, 72, a resident of Union died on December 3, 2012, in Shelton, Washington. She was born February 27, 1940, to Florence and Joseph Baird in Richmond, Virginia.
She grew up in Daly City, California where she attended Jefferson High School and San Francisco State College. 
Joan married Donald Minor on November 1, 1961, in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Temple, in Salt Lake City, Utah. They were married for 51 years.
Joan lived in San Jose, Bakersfield, and Pleasanton, California.  In January of 2001 she and Don moved to the Hood Canal.
Her dedication to the LDS Church was an important part of her daily life.  She spent numerous hours in service to those around her and in her various church activities. Her favorite part was in the giving of her time to the young children in the primary organization, and service projects for those that needed a little extra assistance.
Joan could be found with a good book in hand, a warm hug for someone, and a great batch of chocolate chip cookies to hand out.  Her activities included traveling to visit family, shopping for a bargain, and sitting quietly on a warm sunny day out on the porch. She loved learning about American history and visiting the historical locations. Christmas was a special time for Joan, who went over the top with home decorations and that kooky Yule Log video she enjoyed to play numerous times over the holiday season.
She is survived by her husband, Don Minor of Union; her mother, Florence Baird age 95 of Union; brother, William Baird of San Francisco California; and six children, Sheri, David, Gary, Julie, Melissa, and Jamie and 16 Grandchildren.  She will be missed by all.
