Winnie was one of the most charismatic, sassy, funny and loving people you could ever meet! She was a wife, mother, sister and homemaker as well as an expert seamstress and worked for many shops around Calhoun in the past years. Such as, Moore’s Men and Boys Shop, Mulkey’s, her home place for many years was the Calhoun Watch Shop where she met so many friends and always had a smile for those coming in the door! If you needed some good advice on a problem, a good recipe for her famous Salmon Patties and Yummy Biscuits, or just a smile and hug she was the source!  She wore the title of “The Boss” as being from such a large family she helped with the younger children and in later life was like another mother to us all. She will be truly missed every day of our lives but will never be forgotten and her beautiful legacy will live on!
