Minnie Sarah Bruce, 73, of Dawsonville, died Sept. 9, 2018.
Minnie was a member of Mercy Fellowship Church. She loved the Lord with her whole heart and dedicated her life to God and her children. She had a phenomenal strength, was sweet and the kindest loving person anyone could meet. This strength was seen with the passing of her parents, within months of each other, when Minnie was 16 years old. She loved her family and always wanted to make someone smile. Minnie loved gospel music. Her best advice for everyone was “always put God first.”
Her parents, Sidney Ralph and Nellie Jane Barber; sisters, Margaret and Lily; and brother, Wesley, preceded her in death.
Survivors include her husband, Stanley Bruce; her sons and daughters-in-law, Kevin Dodd, Mark and Jeannie Dodd, Brian and Belinda Dodd, and Keith and Lori Dodd; brothers and sisters-in-law, Oliver “Goonie” and Diane Barber, Richard and Ann Barber; sister-in-law, Ella Barber; brother-in-law and sisters-in-law, Don and Imogene Bruce, Evelyn and Sam Swann, Hoyt and Mary Bruce, Glen and Janie Bruce; grandchildren, Dustin (Lindsey), John Paul, Mark (Shelby), Kayla; great-grandchildren, Allie, Peyton, Cayden, Jency; her puppy, Little Dog; various other relatives also survive.
