Lydia S. Minich

Lydia S. Minich, 82, wife of Cecil Myron Minich, of Beaufort, SC, died Monday, March 18, 2019 at her residence. Memorial Services will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 2:00pm in St. John's Lutheran Church, Beaufort, SC.

Lydia was born on September 2, 1936 in Islip on Long Island, NY. She is the daughter of the late Ferdinand Schaa Sr. and Cecilie Holik Schaa, and the sister of the late Ferdinand Schaa Jr.

A very outgoing and active young lady, Lydia excelled at sports and academics in high school. She, Joan Flower (nee Duffy), and Betty Seyfarth comprised the 'Lyd', 'Duf', and 'Bet' 'trio' and remained friends their whole lives. She was voted the Most Likely to Succeed in her in senior class and succeed she did! She worked her way through nursing school at Flower Fifth Avenue Hospital in NYC and then earned a Masters Degree in Anesthesia from the University of Michigan.

During graduate school at Michigan, she met and married Myron Minich, a career military officer, on December 18, 1960. They graduated and started a family, having 3 children in 4 years. Capable, resourceful, and intense, Lydia liked to be in command of the situation. During the family's tour of duty in Germany, when the dispensary clinic on Post was slated to be shut down, she found and organized other wives who were nurses to volunteer their services and keep the clinic open. Together, they saved many families an hour long trip to the nearest military hospital. During this time, she also managed to fulfill her Artillery Battalion Commander's Wife duties and take care of her 3 children.

When her youngest started school, she volunteered at Georgetown University Hospital until they hired her as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. She worked her way up to the Chief Nurse Anesthetist position, which she held until she moved to Radford VA in 1981 and worked at Radford Community Hospital. There, she became the 'Mom' of the OR, and was the only one there who could put someone to sleep with a funnel, gauze, and Ether! Fortunately, she never had to use those skills.

She always knew her mind and willingly shared what was in it. Family and friends always knew they could count on medical advice and all kinds of help when needed. She retired in 1998, just in time to help take care of a newly arrived grandchild. She continued volunteer efforts during her retirement at the Parris Island Marine Corp Base and her church in Beaufort, SC.

Lydia also enjoyed travel and adventure. After retirement, she and Myron traveled to Alaska, Russia, and South America, among other destinations. To celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in 2010, they took their entire family to Costa Rica over Christmas!

Lydia is survived by her husband Myron, her children; Hillary Minich (David) Armstrong, Russell (Anna) Minich, and David Minich, her grandchildren; Lydia Minich, Miriam Minich, Wyatt Armstrong, and Meryl Armstrong, as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to The Salvation Army.
