To our dear Winters cousins,
We are very saddened to hear of Aunt Polly’s passing. Although the times we had with Aunt Polly (and Uncle Donny) were too few, the great memories of our visits together will always be treasured, as will the photos. We remember Aunt Polly as a beautiful, fun and gracious lady who always made us feel like part of her family. She lived a full life and leaves the world a beautiful legacy — her children, grand-children and great grand-children. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Cousins Lynn, Vicky & Rod (family of Dale Winters).

Polly and I shared comforting thoughts from the “Our Father” Prayer, when God’s Will, will be done on earth as it is in heaven. She also shared the hope of John 5:28,29 of an awakening from sleep back to this earth. She was like a missionary visiting the Bent family when I was young, with beautiful Bible truths. Tenderest affection and condolences from the McLeod(Bent) family.

Condolence from Linda MacKinnon on September 26th, 2020 9:43 am

I first got to know Polly through playing bridge with her, where I soon learned to appreciate her wonderful sense of humour. I also worked with her in the Hospital Auxiliary, in which she was a hard & dedicated worker for many years. She was a lovely lady, with a great wit and love of her family. My sympathies to all her family. RIP Polly.

Condolence from Liz Emenau on September 28th, 2020 2:34 pm

To the Winters’ Family,
Our family lived next door to Polly and Donnie for many years when I was a young girl and I spent many hours playing with Bonnie, Myles, and Ember. I can still remember daydreaming as I watched Polly hang out baby clothes on the line. Our families both moved, so I didin’t get to know Heather and Holly in the same way. Last year while in hospital, I saw a name tag on a nurse’s uniform and discovered it was Heather. She was able to update me on Polly and other members of the family. Polly was a great lady and will be missed by the entire community.
