Minnie Lee Wilson was born on February 27, 1942 in Greenwood Mississippi to the late Garfield and Ora D Cummings. Minnie eventually moved to California where she had 3 beautiful children who preceded her in death. They were Geeia Lynn Ingram, Maurice B. Houston and Fred S. Houston.  

While in California, Minnie worked in various careers throughout her life with the last being for the State of California in Sacramento CA, which she had to leave in her early 60's due to her daughter's tragic death and her numerous health problems.  

Minnie was a deeply religious woman and counseled many individuals in the word of the Lord. She leaves to cherish her memory her sisters Ora Lee Cummings of Mississippi and Georgia Macon of South Bend, IN. and her 4 brothers, Mayo (Alice) Cummings, Edward Cummings, Raymond Cummings all of Fort Wayne and Herman (Tornette) Cummings of Indianapolis and 3 siblings, who also preceded her in death, Selena Lewis, Rosetta Cummings and Tobe B. Smith.  

Minnie will also be forever missed by her Godfather Jim Price of Oakland as well as her friend and caregiver for the last number of years, Michael Valentini, as well as many friends she made throughout her life.  

Minnie will be cremated and her ashes spread over the Pacific Ocean per her wishes. No services will be held in Sacramento, CA. While a memorial will be held in her honor in Fort Wayne, Indiana.




Remembering her is easy

We will do it every day

But there's an ache within our hearts

That will never go away

Life holds so many facets

This earth is only one

Just think of her as only resting

From the sorrows and the tears

In a place of warmth and comfort

Where there are no days and years

Think how she must be wishing

That we could know, today

Now nothing but our sadness

Can really pass away

And think of her as living

In the hearts of those she touched

For nothing loved is ever lost

And she is loved so very much

Love always,

Your siblings
