February 16, 1964, Minnie Mae Lee wrote about her life; a modified version is listed below:
I was born with the name Minnie Mae Lee (married last name is Nixon) and I was the seventh child born to Johnson and Elmira Lee in Yazoo County in Craig, Mississippi, October 6, 1898. I confested hope in christ at age 23. I did not wait to get on my sick bed to call on God. I have always tried to do my best in serving God and I have done my best to live by the bible.
I am only waiting for my crown now. I can say for myself that I am truly a child of God. I know that I am bound for glory and no other place; when I leave this world, I am going to a live in a place with no mankind. I do know that the lord knows what I have done for this to happen.
Please do not worry about me for man look on the outward person but God knows the heart. Some of these days when life is over, I will fly away. I am waiting until my chance come.
