Plattsburgh Daily Press MONDAY, AUGUST 18,1941.

Obituary
MRS. VIRGINIA C. MINNIE
Final rites for the late Mrs. Virginia
C. Minnie, a former resident
of Dannemora who died at the
home of her daughter, Mrs. John
Atchinson, 55 Osborne Road, Albany,
August 2, 1941, were held
from St. Joseph’s church, Dannemore,
Tuesday, Aug. 5, where a requiem
Mass was celebrated by the
pastor Rev. Father Alexander P.
Landry, assisted by Rev. Father
Earl Taylor.
In the sanctuary were the Rev.
Dean E. J. Brown of Plattsburgh,
Rev. Father Benj. S. Stale of Lyon
Mountain and Rev. Father M. Gobet
of Morrisonville.
The choir under the direction of
Mrs. Agnes Facteau, assisted by
Mrs. M. Wardell, soloist, rendered
several appropriate hymns.
A large assemblage of relatives,
friends and former neighbors Were
present at the ceremonies; they
came to pay a last tribute of devotion
to one they had loved in
life.
Mrs. Minnie was born in the town
of Saranac, October 7, 1853 the oldest
of four daughters of Louis
Coulbron and Mary Columbe, pioneer
residents of the Saranac Valley.
In 1875 she was1 united in marriage
to Andrew Minnie also of Saranac
Their marriage was a singularly
happy one. Mrs. Minnie shared
equally her husband’s successes and
disappointments. Twelve children
were born to their union, ten of
whom reached manhood and womanhood.
The first break in the
family was the untimely death of
a son Philmore, in Albany followed
shortly by that of Mr. Minnie
in the summer of 1924. Some two
years later following a lingering illness
Dora, the youngest daughter,
wife of Donald Parsons of Ossining,
N. Y., passed away, but the
culminating sorrow in Mrs. Minnie’s
life was the death of her eldest
son Rev. Moses D. Minnie, the
beloved assistant pastor of St. Joseph’s
church, Dannemora which
oscurred July 31, 1935.
This noble wife and mother, passing
through shadow as well as sunshine
bore her sorrows with christian
fortitude. With each separation
her sympathies became more broadened
and her optimism more deep rooted.
Mrs. Minnie was a direct des-
cendent in the male line from the
illustrious de Coulbron headed by
Count Louis Phillipe de Coulbron,
owner of large feudal estates in
that department.
She is survived by five daughters
and two sons. They are; Mrs.
Estella Sheehy and Mrs. Lucille Pelineau
of Amsterdam; Mrs. John
Atchinson and Harry Minnie of
Albany; Mrs. Paul Strack of Utica;
Miss Catherine Minnie of Plattsburgh
and Leo Minnie of Old Forge,
She leaves two sisters in Plattsburgh,
Mrs. Josephine Bouteau and
Mrs. Lucy Morrison and a large
number of grandchildren, several
great-grandchildren.
Pallbearers were Philmore, Howard
and Sullivan King of Chazy
Lake, nephews; George Graves, Jr.,
and Charles Carter of Plattsburgh,
grand-nephews and Ernest Brissette
of Dannemora, a cousin.
Interment was in the family burial
plot in St. Joseph’s cemetery,
Dannemora
