I did not personally know Mrs. Connor but I learned so much about her from her grandson Gary who is my good friend. She seems like a lovely and compassionate woman who brought light into everyone’s life. I’m blessed to have Gary share his love for her with me - sharing her spirit and spreading her light to me and others. A grand lady who shall be missed by many. 🙏❤️🌈

Wow! I have so many memories of Aunt Winnie Mae that it is difficult to narrow it down to one. Growing up you couldn't say Aunt Winnie Mae without saying Uncle Doc also. She took excellent care of him. I remember them taking me to the Halloween Carnival at the school in Brandon where Uncle Doc worked. I remember them taking me to church with them in Dover. I remember her beautiful crochet work. I remember them at the little store on the corner down from Dover School. I remember hunting Easter eggs at their home when we were small. I remember Jerry and me going by and surprising them at their home in Old Town and how graciously she welcomed us. I loved both of them so much and I love you guys too.
