Dear Danenberg family,
Your hearts must be broken at the loss of your dear Mother. I was so sorry to hear about her passing. My siblings and I were glad we got to spend some time with her in 2019 during our Michigan visit. What a sweet and gracious lady Aunt Winnie was and I'll always remember her as the Aunt with the megawatt smile that lit up her face.

Please accept our deepest sympathies and may your memories of her ease your grief.

Our condolences to the family. While I didn’t know her well, I met her several times and had such great respect and admiration for her. She was an amazing woman to raise that many children, and give so much of herself. She lived a long life and she experienced more than many will in a lifetime, so I’m sure she’s embracing her husband, sons and grandson in heaven.

Her son, Bill, was married to my sister, Pat.
