Minnie Lee (Wright) Fisbeck passed away peacefully at home with all her children by her side on August 15, 2021 at age 89. She was born on June 9, 1932 to Roger Lee & Minnie Wright. Minnie grew up in Dilworth with her sister, June. She attended Dilworth School, Moulton High and later transferred to Gonzales High School, graduating in 1950. After graduation, she worked on the family farm and was an office clerk. Over the years, Minnie Lee had several business endeavors with her first husband, Norman Novosad, including Novosad Produce and Corn Cob Hill. Later she decided to venture out on her own as an independent woman. She owned and managed Wagon Wheel Caf? for a number of years, then also opened two successful businesses - The Dairy Treet in 1966 and then Granie's Stuff antique shop. In 1977, she married G.G. Fisbeck. Minnie Lee worked hard to not only provide a good life for her family but to also help make her home - Moulton - the best place it could be. As an active community member, Minnie saw a need and took action. Whether it was leading the town as Mayor for many years during the 1990s, serving on city council for almost a decade or founding the Keep Moulton Beautiful organization, just to name a few, she worked tirelessly to improve the quality of life for all those who call Moulton home. She was proud of her town; she truly loved her town.
When Minnie Lee wasn't busy cleaning up the streets of the city, she would be found giving her time to care for others and serve her faith community. She took many friends and neighbors to various doctor appointments and she spent many an hour planting flowers, answering phones or working VBS at Zion Lutheran Church. Minnie was faithful in her service to God and her fellow man.
Above all else though, Minnie Lee loved her family. She relished Sunday get-togethers and holidays spent with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She wanted nothing more than to spend time with those she loved. Her spunk, honesty, unwavering faith and loving embrace will be missed by those who had the privilege to call her Mom, Granie & friend.
Minnie Lee is preceded in death by her parents, husband G.G. Fisbeck and sister June Wright. She is survived by her children Norma Leeper, Marlon Novosad (Deborah) and Danae Kozelsky, her grandchildren Amber Nieto (Brian), Veronica Johnson (Chad), Lindsay Kasper (Steven), Cliff Kozelsky (Robyn), Joel Novosad (Ashley), Jacob Novosad (Kelley), and her great-grandchildren Kaitlyn Nieto, Emma Nieto, Felix Nieto, Brody Johnson, Dylan Johnson, John Kozelsky, Annie Kozelsky, Cadence Novosad and Autumn Novosad.
