Floyd and Stella, I am so very sorry to learn of the passing of your mother. She was a wonderful woman who always had a smile to share. She was like family to me and she will be missed. God's blessings to you both.

I've been lucky to count Win's daughter, Stella, as a dear friend since high school and even to this day. Our friendship has continued through college in Los Angeles and our first shared apartment after graduation with Stella going through her first year of law school. Win's long distance support for Stella and me and for our entry into the real world was met with good humor and sound advice. Even though high school graduation is very much in the rear view mirror, Stella and I have stayed in touch and I'd often reach out to Win. When my children were born, she sent a Savings Bond for each which are tucked away for them to perhaps buy something for their first apartment with a high school or college chum. When I struggled through a health crisis, Win sent prayers my way which comforted me and gave me courage. Win left Sunnyslope, Phoenix and the world a better place and will not be forgotten.

I was lucky enough to have Win (and Frank) as a neighbor for 18 years. She was the first neighbor I met when she brough over homemade prickly pear cactus jelly as a house warming present and introduced herself. I enjoyed spending time with her over the years, at her home, her store, and at community gatherings. She was a great friend and neighbor, I will miss her dearly.

It was a pleasure to work in conjunction with Win as she promoted civility and and good for her community in the Sunnyslope area. She did it from her heart, not for any formal recognition. A fine human being. It was an honor to know her.

Floyd, your mom did alot of great things for people and made positive changes that made people's lives better. My sincerest condolences for your loss.

She was a champion for kids and the Sunnyslope neighborhood, and a great advocate for good! It wasa joy to know her.
