(#1389) Minnie O'D (Spartanburg, SC)
3/5-8/1992 in Greenville, SC  EVENT: 45th South Carolina State Convention  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Sober 37 years since 1954, at 76 years old, Minnie describes herself as a Sober Rebel.

She hates the term 'dysfunctional family'.

Born on tobacco road, she could not read or write for much of her life. Hiding this fact led her to make many poor choices.

She knew Bill W from getting sober in NY. She would not go to meetings where he went because he talked so long the meeting went overtime.

She regrets that a bit today.

Historical - Powerful.
