Winnie and I were close friends since eighth grade at FCHS. At JMU (Madison College) we were roommates for a while. The last two reunions of the FCHS class of 1955 we traveled together and spent time catching up and having a great time. Winnie was a remarkable lady, beautiful singer and an all around grand lady. Her two sons and their families were so important to her and she spoke of them often. I am thankful to have had Winnie in my life. She will be missed.

Sometimes you are so lucky in life in being able to "choose" a family member. We were all so blessed in choosing Aunt Winnie and Uncle Don!
Many happpy memories at holidays and special birthdays, and the laughter shared when we were all together.

You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
Love Dona and family

Classy lady. 100%. Enjoyed being family through my sister. Enjoyed her company at different family Thanksgivings and Christmases at Stephen's and Roya's house. She will be missed. She raised two gentlemen in Trent and Stephen. See you in the next world Winnie. God bless.

I went to Fluvanna County High School with Winnie. After graduation we went different ways and I didn’t see her anymore. I moved to Richmond about 15 years ago after my husband’s death and joined Derbyshire Baptist Church. I opened my home for a WMU dinner and several of the ladies I had not met came. A neighbor came in with a lady, introduced her to me. I looked at her, she looked at me. About the same time we recognized each other and became very close friends again. We lived only a couple streets apart in the same subdivision. Went to lunches, went to church together, shopped together. I have a very empty spot in my life but we will meet again.
