DEXTER - On Tuesday May 10, 2016, Althea M. Minton passed away at home surrounded by her children.
She was part of a generation challenged by circumstances in the world. Born during the Depression and coming of age during a World War, she graduated from Skowhegan High School in 1948 and married Robert P. Minton in 1949. Together they raised five children and enjoyed fifty-two years of marriage.
She was predeceased by her husband, Robert; and her son, Michael. She is survived by her son, Duane Minton of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands; a daughter, Juanita Staples of Dexter, Maine; a daughter, Roberta Vivas of Roslindale, Mass.; and a daughter, Annette Veyn of Naples, Florida. She is also survived by four grandchildren, one great-grandson, and many, many cousins, nieces and nephews.
A memorial service is planned for July.
