I knew Winnie from Super Valu where I worked for many years. I always enjoyed chatting with her when she did her shopping. You are so right when you say that she was adored by many, me being one of them. She was such a lovely lady and lots of fun too. She would always tell me about her family so I felt like I knew them too. My sincere condolences to all of Winnie's family and friends as well. She was a special person.
