Winnie was delightful person and a joy to be around. She worked for us many years and kept everyone  laughing all the time.  She had a heart of gold always doing for others.  She was always so much fun at our annual Christmas parties telling jokes, making up stories and claiming she could read Chinese Tea Leaves when we would dine at a Chinese restaurant.....telling what the leaves were saying.  She was very entertaining, convincing and hilarious to all!  She will definitely missed!  God Bless Winnie and May she Rest In Peace!

We traveled to Hawaii with both sides of the family and how she loved the sun
Winnie was an especially kind friend to our Mom Lorraine Wiley. They enjoyed many Lunches and Movies. She always had a sweet smile and always kind words for all.. She will be missed by many.

I loved my Auntie Winnie.  She was always so much fun to be around and she always paid attention to us when we were kids and our families were visiting together. She was generous and kind. I used to look forward with excitement and anticipation when my parents told us we would be going "to the States" to visit the O'Hara's.  To all my cousins, I send my love a warm virtual hug.  Linda and Gerry
