  2. My condolences are with family and friends at this time. Winifred was a very nice lady and always a pleasure to be around. I enjoyed calling Bingo and seeing the excitement on her face when she won! She will definitely be missed around the Towers.

  3. I will miss her at Bingo as well as her Son Win. He was so good to his Mother. Winifred a special Lady, Kind to all. I was shocked when I found out such a precious Lady is no longer with us. My condolences to all her family.
