Miss Phebe Minzey, 100,
Passes In Hospital
MILAN - Miss Phebe A. Minzey, Milan's oldest resident, who observed her 100th birthday last Oct. 8, died today in the Saline General hospital where she had been a patient for the last nine months.
Miss Minzey, who loved to reminisce about her pioneer childhood, was a life-long resident of this community. She was born Oct. 8, 1840, in Augusta township, the third of 12 children of John and Phebe Minzey. Her parents came to Washtenaw county from New York state in 1835.
She lived on the Minzey farm for 72 years, then moved to Milan where she made her home with Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Fullerton, who preceded her in death. She was a member of the People's church of Milan. During her childhood she attended the old Female Seminary in Ypsilanti.
She is survived by a nephew, Frank Minzey, Bellevue, O.; and three nieces, Mrs. Anna Holland, Milan, Mrs. Mina Kenyon, Hastings, and Mrs. Jane Sweitzer, Ypsilanti.
Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon at the Stevens & Bush funeral home here, with Rev. Stephen Crowell officiating. Burial will be in Stony Creek cemetery.
