July 6, 1957 - Aunt Min is retired: Aunt Min retired this week after making more than 300,000 loaves of homemade white bread topped with a golden crust.

Miss Minnie Janssen is the cheerful, grey-haired proprietor of Aunt Min's Bake Shop, 611 George St. As hundreds of De Pere area people know, her shop looks like grandmother's kitchen rather than a retail bakery.

Through the years Aunt Min put in from 14 to 15 hours every day, baking from 100 to 120 loaves daily in 10-loaf batches. Her day began each morning at 5 o'clock and often she didn't turn out the lights and lock the door until 9 o'clock at night.

In the spring Aunt Min used a big share of her savings to build a new snug little brick house at 310 N. Erie St. She has now moved there from the small room at the back of the bake shop and is planning on enjoying life leisurely.
