Paulina Minore (nee Agosta), our beloved mother, passed away peacefully at her
home on September 12, 2019.
Paulina was born on July 30, 1928 in Partinico, Sicily. Her mother, Santina, was
American born, and their family re-immigrated to the United States when Paulina
was 21 years old. She came with both of her parents, Santina and Domenico, and
her two remaining siblings, Josepina and Gina. When Paulina was 25 years old,
she returned to Sicily to marry our father, Frank Minore. They returned to the US
and initially lived in Bay City, Michigan to be near her maternal uncle, Joseph
Favazza (city attorney for Bay City) and family. In search of a warmer climate, in
1960 they moved to San Diego, and remained here until their deaths.
Our mother was smart, funny, hard working, and strong. Both of our parents
worked very hard to raise us five children and give us the very best they could.
Two of their sons went on to become attorneys (Dominic and Frank Jr.), which
made our parents very proud.
Paulina was preceded in death by her husband, Frank, and her son, Frank Jr. She is
survived by four of her five children, Mary, William, Dominic, and Joseph. She is
also survived by numerous nieces and nephews in Michigan and Sicily.
Our mother was a devout Roman Catholic, and a member of Blessed Sacrament
Church in San Diego since 1960, along with our entire family. She was a
Eucharistic Minister for the church, which brought her great joy and honor.
We are forever grateful for all of their sacrifices. Their sacrifices gave us
opportunities they never had. Both of our parents will forever be in our hearts.
Also, we are grateful to our brother William (Bill) for taking care of her in her final
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Father Joe’s Villages in San Diego
supporting the homeless.
