Ms. Minnie Bell Allen, 95, born on May 20, 1927 in Gilbert, South Carolina, passed away on Friday, February 3, 2023. She was the daughter of the late Milton and Movis Wise. She was the youngest sister. She was known as “Dab” to her family. She joined Friendship Missionary Baptist Church at an early age. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son, Alexander Wise and her daughter-in-law, Barbara Wise; her sisters, Earline Wise, Bertha Mae Thomas and Nancy Lee Wise.
Minnie lived in Johnston, SC, Aiken SC and Maryland. She lived in Washington DC for over 40 years and returned to South Carolina in 2016 to be with her son and his family. She was a part of the Metro Special Police Department in Washington DC for over 25 years. After she retired, she worked at a nursing home and a library, working in the cafeteria. Minnie received awards for perfect attendance and received an honorary award from her team, the Washington Redskins. Minnie was a diehard fan of the Washington Redskins for many years and believed her team was the best team there was playing. She has traveled alongside many famous singers, quartets, and bands. She was also a security guard.
Left to cherish her precious memories: her granddaughter, Miranda Wise of Greensboro, North Carolina; her great friends, Louis Holloway and Irish Williams-Garner; a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, cousins, other family and many sorrowing friends.
