We are honored and grateful to have known such a loving, caring and a truly great teacher and person! We knew the Davison family in Dalton as we were in the Dalton School system also. She was one of the best teachers we have ever had the pleasure of knowing. We lost track of Winnie shortly after they moved to CA but we have thought of her often and remember her with warm thoughts. She was truly a jewel! Rich and Connie Krause

Aunt Winnie, We loved you so much. I have so many good memories of Christie and I visiting you. Dalton and Lompoc. You always made us feel so welcome. It was so fun when you and Uncle John came for Balloon Fiesta. I especially love you for being such a good big sister to my Mom. All my love in eternity Cyndie Hogg
