Mina was a large, simple-minded nurse who cared for George Decopolus after he suffered a stroke. George was the owner of the “Say it With Flowers” greenhouse, right next to Sunny Dell Acres and Mina’s cousin Morning Gloria took over running the greenhouse. One of the two may have been the stricken man’s niece.
Gloria was also on the FBI wanted list, having been there for over twenty years for her part in making bombs. She used the greenhouse as a front for fertilizer bombs but when a pair of future terrorists tried to stiff her on a payment she and Mina broke their necks and dumped the bodies in the parking space of radio host Ted Tellum. It should be noted during the combat that Mina did not seem to know her own strength and thought she had just put them to sleep. Dumping the bodies would provide the evidence Tracy needed to get a warrant on the greenhouse and he and Lizz Worthington raided the business. Gloria got into a brutal fight with Tracy while Mina held Lizz, keeping her from interfering in her cousins fight. Both woman initially gaining the upper hand in the combat. Tracy was finally able to draw a weapon on Gloria, forcing her surrender and Mina switched sides after Lizz offered her $10, $9 more than Gloria paid her.
The wanted bomb maker was hauled off to prison and Mina became a minor celebrity nurse after her role reversal was printed in the newspapers. Gravel Gertie, the next door neighbor of George Decoplus (and a former employee) took over caring for the bedridden man.
