Florence's Story

Text size

Florence I. Winder, 78, of Milton, died Friday, Aug. 19, 2016, at her home surrounded by family.

She was born March 11, 1938, in Milton, a daughter of the late Arthur and Vernica (Allen) Bennett. On July 26, 1969, she married Lenwood Winder, who preceded her in death on Dec. 28, 1981.

Florence enjoyed needlepoint, playing cards, playing Bingo, telling jokes, and making jewelry that she readily gave away to those that helped care for her. During her younger years, she loved camping and traveling with her cousin and best friend, Shelvia Neitz, of Milton. Most importantly, she loved spending time with her children and grandchildren.

She is survived by her children, Gary Lee Bennett and his wife Kim, of Florida; Ronald Winder, Alicia Ross-Steiger, Cathy Cupp and her husband Michael, Mary Kay Aikey, Donna Winder, Shannon Bole and her husband Nathan, all of Milton, and Tammy Speece and her husband David, of Lewisburg; two sisters, Etta Gallaer and her husband Skip, of Port Trevorton, and Margaret Welty, of Florida; numerous nieces and nephews; 17 grandchildren; and 20 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by one son, Scott Winder; one daughter, Nancy Marshall; one son-in-law, William Steiger; three brothers, Lewis, Michael and Wilburt "Jake" Bennett; and three sisters, Caroline Ross, Mary Makimcee and Rhoda Yothers.

Services will be held privately at the convenience of the family.

The family suggests memorial contributions in Florence's memory be made to SUN Home Health & Hospice, P.O. Box 232, Northumberland, PA 17857.

The family is being assisted by Cronrath-Grenoble Funeral Home, 308 Main St., Watsontown.
