In 1980, Aetna moved Winnie to Macon and she continued to work there until her retirement in the late 90's.

She served on the Board of Directors for Meals on Wheels and was hired to become their Executive Director. She was asked to keep the organization in the “middle of the road”. She not only did that, but she made it a financially stable enterprise that served thousands of needy seniors.

She and Danny had a huge love of sports especially the Georgia Bulldogs. They planned their Saturdays watching college football, beginning with Game Day. They were also very passionate about their 4 dachshunds as well as all animals.

Winnie was a member of Martha Bowman United Methodist Church and served on Administrative Council, Finance Committee, Trustees, and was Chair of Staff Parrish. She was a member of Francis Asbury Sunday School Class and served as president. Winnie was a founding member of Monday Night Bible Study 20 years ago where she was a much loved teacher and leader of the group. Winnie loved the Lord and loved to study His word. Winnie was named a Woman of Achievement in 2007 by Career Womens Network. She served on many boards, including the Leading Age where she was appointed to the Executive Committee.

Winnie is survived by her husband, Danny Hinton of Macon; niece, Karen Todd Weeks; nephews, John & Daniel Brock; sister-in-law, Anna Brock; 4 canine children, Wesley, Scarlet, Tootie, and Bear.

My relationship with Winnie started in Atlanta. She was my manager at Aetna. I moved to Macon with Aetna and Winnie and our relationship blossomed both personally and professionally. She was my mentor, a great person and a great and dear friend
She had a positive impact on my life on many levels. As I’m sure many can say the same. That’s simply who she was. I thank God our lives intersected. I thank God for her life. My thoughts and prayers are with Danny and her other love ones.

I cannot list all of the wonderful things that you have done for me. It all started with my job interview with you at Meals on Wheels. I left the interview knowing that I had that job. This turned out to be the most rewarding job that I ever had. The only job that I was told constantly “What a wonderful service you provide .” Winnie made this job fun and provided me an avenue for another job in aging. Of course we had our differences and I quickly learned that Winnie was going to win the misunderstanding so there was no reason to fight back. Winnie took nothing off of anyone. We tuned out to be best friends . I spoke with her almost daily. Winnie, you are very missed!

Danny, Winnie moved to Dadeville after I left but I got to know her thru classmates, reunions, and our class site. I loved her kind heart and how she loved glitz and glamour. Know you will miss the sparkle she brought to everything she did. I am so sorry. Prayers for you and all who are missing her already.

I am sure, one of the first friends in heaven, to greet Winnie was my late husband, Rex. High school friends bonded forever. Nelda, Roberta, Winnie, Along with many Dadeville High School classmates, also became my adopted friends! What a beautiful person, inside and out! God’s blessings of peace and comfort! A wonderful feeling, Danny, to know you will be reunited again, some day for eternity! No more goodbyes..Psalm 91:4
