Mina is survived by her children David (Leya) of Myakka, Florida, Wendy of Bealeton, Virginia, Melinda (Russell) Adams of The Villages, Florida, Debi (Tom) Ankney of Grand Rapids, Michigan, 5 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind her dear sister Barbara Bensman and brother Gib (Arlene) Rose. She is preceded in death by her husband Joseph, parents, and her sister Eloise.

Mina was born on May 28, 1923 in Jamestown, New York to Benjamin and Bessie Rose. The family moved around frequently during her youth and eventually settled in Detroit, Michigan where Mina graduated from Central High School. At the end of World War II Mina married Joseph and they settled in Trenton, Michigan where they raised their family.

After her youngest child was born Mina joined the family business, Chelsea Clothes, and along with her husband, and brother and sister-in-law, Gib and Arlene Rose, built it into a very successful clothing business.

Mina and Joe were also instrumental in developing the downriver Jewish community and were founding members of the Beth Isaac Synagogue in Trenton.

Mina was extremely skilled at knitting and sewing and could knit a sweater in a week while watching television.

After Mina and Joe retired they settled in Bradenton, Florida and had many pleasurable years there. She enjoyed her volunteer work at Mote Marine in Sarasota.
