    Stan, Luke, Joy, HJ, and Zeb, and the rest of the family... 

    I’m so sorry for your loss!! Winona was a true example for all to follow! She cared for her children, grandchildren, neighbors/friends (Lexi, Isaac, and me), and her church! She did what was in front of her to do! She raised her children and then four of her grandchildren and led a multigenerational home until she died (with Stan)! I will miss her and am sorry for the loss in this world! Her kindness will be remembered!  

    We love you!!!
