Minnie was born Michalina Bielka in Poland in 1925 and came to Canada c1928 with her family to homestead the Nut Mountain district. In her youth she was a seamstress in Winnipeg.
Minnie married Dolphy and made her family home in Buchanan. After Dolphy's death she raised us in Prince Albert. She took care of family in need, always fed everyone and made clothes for everyone.
She grew a bountiful garden and hosted feasts on special occasions. Her house was home for many people. Mom loved babies and loved being a Granny. She moved to Saskatoon and Whitecourt to be close to us. We are grateful for all the caregivers at the Mayerthorpe Auxilliary Hospital, Whitecourt Hospital and Spruceview Lodge in Whitecourt for taking care of our Mom.
