I did not get to calling hours last night, but I will always remember Winnie. I saw her last at a community family picnic held at the little church that we a re making over into a community center. She wanted to see it get a new rook and things better inside as she wanted to have a funeral and then be buried out back through the church. My prayers and the Neal family prayers are with the Wentworth's at this time.

I so treasure our little spring and summer road trips on the back roads of the valley...hearing Winnie's stories and digging up daffodil bulbs at old deserted homesteads!!!

To the Wentworth Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.

May each day that goes by give you the strength to carry on. A mother's care, friendship, and love are irreplaceable. Cherish the fond memories of her that you hold within your heart, and you will soon begin to see the beauty, wisdom, and lasting impressions that she has left you.

A mother's act of kindness and care is given to her children throughout her lifetime. I know that Winifred "Winnie" had to be extraordinarily special because, under her watchful eye and loving care, you all became the wonderful, loving people that you are today.

Sending you lots of love and a great big hug.
