Thinking of you all today. I am so sorry for your loss.
I remember you all fondly when we were all little girls just playing and having fun!
Both your father and mother were very special people in my parents lives, and mine as well! I can always remember your mothers smile, she was a very beautiful and kind friend.
Sincerely, Sheila Youse/Erickson

Winnie was a mentor and fellow Nordy over our careers there. She guided us and was a special friend. Many good times and her family was unique. In later years it was special to get together at the annual JWNordstrom dinners. A true friend and always giving when needed..
We will miss you.
Gale and Helen Wergeland

Winnie was my neighbor at the Garden Senior Village apartments . 30 some years ago she hired my son to work at Nordstrom and one day we ran into each other in the hallway and after all these years she remembered my son. Winnie will be missed as she was a very gracious lady. My sympathy to the family . Betty Rousu
