My Aunt, my inspiration, my mentor. Many , many memories and to many to list. We always had to go to the big Texan when I came home to visit. She gave my grand daughters Dr Pepper and donuts when they stopped to visit on the way to Atlanta.

She loved to tell the story when Dave and I ask her to ride to Coos Bay , Or. on a day trip. We were in an El Camino and three of us could fit easily in the seat but her friend wanted to go to so we all squeezed in and had a tight ride for 100 miles with her friend on her lap.

With her Texas accent she always called Dave (Dive). When I got my Cadillac , Dave called me mini Winnie, as I had her big red hair as well.

So kind to me all my life and to my children and grandchildren. RIP
