A look back at the stars we lost this year, from producers to actors and actresses.

Described as a “Mama Bear” of the group, Ms. Minnie made a splash when Little Women: Atlanta debuted in 2016, and brought joy to viewers for five seasons. The Atlanta branch of Lifetime’s franchise followed in the footsteps of the original Little Women and Little Women: LA.

The show followed Ms. Minnie and her fellow little ladies as they went through life, and even though drama could run high, that didn’t stop them from living it up in whatever circumstances they found themselves in.
