Barbara Lou Welch Minton was born July 31st, 1928, daughter of Frank and Bonnie (Clay) Hollinger Welch of Bradford, granddaughter of Francis “Frank” and Viola (Clay) Hollinger in Randolph County, Indiana. She married Walter Leroy Minton, son of Noah and Ethel Shook Minton of Ansonia, on June 18th, 1945, on the Great Lakes Naval Base before Walter was stationed on the aircraft carrier, the USS Princeton. They lived in Piqua for many years, but later moved to the country near Covington. She is preceded in death by Walter and her son Jeffery Leroy Minton. She is survived by her daughters Jennifer Minton Romick of Covington and Leeca (Timothy) Minton Smith of Fishers, Indiana; grandson Robert Emerson Anspach (Jane Weinschenck Vlahos), Piqua; James Christopher Anspach of Covington; Travis Minton (Tiffany Minton) of Dayton; and Emily Scholes of Dayton.

She was a lifelong member of the Greene Street United Methodist Church, serving as a trustee for a number of years. She was also a member of the Tots to Teens Mothers Club for almost 45 years and she and the Club aided Ruth Hawn in establishing the Hahn-Hufford Center.
