Gramma Winnie was a stage 3 breast cancer survivor of more than 20 years. She also survived a ruptured duodenal ulcer from which she completely bled out. She was well-known for her iron will having gotten into trouble her first day in school for refusing to tell the teacher her name; she was not fond of it. We feel that this iron will is what she called upon to survive her cancer and ulcer. We always knew that she would go when SHE wanted to and not a minute sooner. Gramma was great at playing Rummy and never lost her touch for winning. Winnie loved children and was called on more than once for her excellent day care skills when grandchildren and great-grandchildren came along, thus the family term "Winnie Babies" was born.
Gramma Winnie was much loved and will be greatly missed every day. - Laura Myers
