Chosen family Lucy Drew, Maddie Tremlett, Tammy Duffy and Rick Brushett. and lifelong friends Kevin and Lorraine Edney.

Mom was the rock upon which we each built our families. She blessed so many lives with her warm, caring soul - always demonstrating love, peace, kindness and concern for others. She loved to tend her garden at Hell Hill Pond and nourished her flowers as she had her children. Mom was a woman of great faith and whenever anyone needed God’s ear, they turned to her. Prayers to find something lost, prayers to get the job or get the promotion, she seemed to have a back channel to the Lord as all of her prayers were answered. She had a way of making everyone feel important and valued. It was her special charm that drew people toward her and those who knew her felt blessed and privileged to be part of her circle. She was a second Mom to many and Aunt Winnie to everyone.

Mom was a lifetime member of St. Kevin’s Choir, past member of the Catholic Women’s League, Girl Guides, St Pat’s Dancer’s and an Honorary Cadet.

Thank you to Dr. Annette McCarthy and Dr Leonard Phair who treated Mom with kindness and respect. To Mom’s nurse Tammy-Lee Joyce and her caregivers Tsitsi Loder and Karla Pilgrim who helped us care for Mom daily, we are forever grateful. Thank you to Father Jeffrey Kolonel for your spiritual guidance and to niece Gail Ridgeley for your steady hand and advice in guiding us through Mom’s journey Home.

Our family wishes to express sincere gratitude and thanks to our loving and large family and many wonderful friends who have reached out with kindness, love and support. You’ve always been there for Mom and for us and we love you all.

The wind offers promise for a better tomorrow and as Winnie often said “This too shall pass, it’s only while it’s passing..”

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no visitation. A celebration of Mom’s life will be held at a later date.
