Minton was born into this world a happy, bubbly baby girl who loved to play and enjoy all of what life had to offer her as a child, teenager and adult. She spent the first eight years of her life in Casper, WY until she moved with her family to Texas City, TX where she was raised and graduated from High School in 2001. She went on to receive a welding degree from College of the Mainland in Texas City. Minton was a dedicated softball player and umpire from the age of 11 through her adult years. She loved the game and hoped to pass it down to her children.

She had moved in with Derrick’s grandparents, Reverend Joseph and Marilyn Franklin, and thus began her life journey with Derrick. In 2012 they were married and two years later made the decision to move the Franklin family to Montana. They made their home in Fort Shaw and Minton was greatly loved by her community. She has a huge amount of extended family & friends, as she touched everyone she came in contact with throughout her life.

She was first and foremost a woman of God and helped spread God’s word and love everywhere she went.

She loved her children and husband with her entire being and was a wonderful mom who always put her family first.
