You could never have a regular conversation with Winnie, without talking about the lord Jesus and making sure you get Baptize in Jesus name. Winnie loves to travel, she never miss a trip, she would just jump in her car and drive far distance, especially church trip for the most part, she could not get enough about God and his teachings. She was the go getter of the family. She was the one who would find all her family members outside of her immediate family to meet each other. For Example: she sought and found her father and mother’s sibling’s children, so that they could meet each other. She was a woman to speak her mind, whether you like it or not, however in the same token, she could not hold a grudge. Winnie loved people, her family but most of all, she loved God.
