Obituary Send Flowers Send a Card

On Sunday, October 2, 2016 at Wesley Merit Health in Hattiesburg, God plucked one of His beautiful flowers on earth for his garden in heaven. Although God knew she was getting weary on this life’s journey, He promise to give her sweet and everlasting rest beyond the river.

Mrs. Minnie Taylor Hinton was born to the late Mr. David Taylor and Mrs. Annie Mae Taylor on December 17, 1937. She was reared in rural Jefferson Davis County around Silver Creek and the Shady Grove Community. She attended school at the Lucas Attendance Center. Later on she met and married the late David Hinton and to this union 10 children were born.

She join Hollisday Day Creek at an early age and sang in the full gospel choir. She also started the Gospel Angels singing group that journeyed everywhere lifting up the name of Jesus. She was a mission member, and she served on the pastor’s aide committee.

She was a mother, aunt, and friend to everyone she met. She never met a stranger, and if you were hungry, she would feed you some of that good ol’ corn bread, greens, sweet potatoes, and southern fried chicken, with a glass of sweet tea. She will be missed.

She was preceded in death by four brothers: Fred, Tom, Jessie, and Johnnie Taylor; five sisters Mary, Izora, Bonree, Martha Taylor and Mae Barnes; husband David Hinton; and two grandson, Raheem Hinton and Raymond Walker.

She leaves to carry on her memories: Four Sons; Thomas Hinton(Sictoria), Willie(Alma) Hinton, David(Virginia)Hinton, and James(Mashonda)Hinton all of Bassfield; Four Daughters; Ivy Nell Hinton of Prentiss, Mary Walker of D’Ibervill, Dorothy (late Levell) Mark of Columbia, Michelle(Joe)Smith of New Hebron. One sister, Doris Taylor of Minneapolis, MN; One brother Luke Taylor of Gulfport; One special grandson, Eron Brooks of Bassfield; three granddaughters she raised as her own, Casheila Lewis, Virginia Hinton, and Cassandra Warren, and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, relative and friends.

    We will truly miss Aunt Minnie. She was such as beautiful person inside and out. At every family reunion, she had kind words for all of us. I absolutely admired her carefree love for life and her warm heart for her family.
