Winnifred G. O'Hara
Winnifred Grace (Winnie) O’Hara, age 92, peacefully passed away early Sunday morning August 30, 2020 at Silverado Bellingham.
Winnie was born July 1, 1928 in Winnipeg, Manitoba to Ernest Dalzell and Elanor (Hosford) Dalzell. She graduated from Daniel McIntyre High School and moved to Vancouver, B.C. at age eighteen. In 1948 she married Ken O’Hara of Bellingham. They lived, worked and raised their family in Whatcom County.
She loved her family, friends and many pets. She enjoyed travel (Ireland and England), music (Jazz and Big Bands), and “working” complex puzzles. She was especially fond of sunshine. Throughout her life Winnie lived by faith in Christ and prayer.
Winnie is survived by her brother Ernie (Marj) Dalzell; her children Scarlett (Steven) Ballard, Tanis (Randy) Cowin, Craig (Beverly Rae) O’Hara, Terry (Diana) O’Hara, Ted O’Hara, and Karen (William) Tiernan; nineteen grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
