Winnie was so good to us in our early years. At Christmas we had no tree decorations and she'd loan us some of hers. She made all kinds of things for Chad. Crossstich violin, turtle quilt which he still has. So thankful for her

Our condolences to the family. She was a lovely lady and always had a nice smile for us when we saw her at Nakile. When the Covid19 lockdown passes we will visit Randy again. Take care. Bill & Joanne Bourque

Randy and Linda, I am so sorry to hear of Great Aunt Winnie's passing. I have so many rich memories as a child of visiting your home. Winnie was always so kind to allow us to visit often and even several long rows of plant vegetable gardens on the property. Many a summer my parents and I would toil and see the Lord produce such beautiful and delicious goodies for us to enjoy the whole year long. I fondly remember Aunt Winnie's faith, her many crafts, and her very strong work ethic. I still have several wonderful items she sewed for me as gifts. What a legacy she has left! May God bless you today as you mourn our loss and celebrate her rich life. Til we meet again on that beautiful shore! Rev. Chad Nickerson
