WINIFRED was 96 years of age at the time of her passing in Canton, MI.

She was born on October 28, 1916 in Highland Park, MI, and  was the proud, generous matriarch of a large, loving and lively Irish family.

She was retired from the J.L. Hudson Co.  She was a keen observer of the human condition, a voracious reader, crossword puzzle enthusiast, and an eager Pinochle player.

She is the adored grandmother of Kevin (Deborah) McKane, Maria (Tom Kowalski) McKane,  Monica (John Schulte) Kish, Michael (Kristal) Kish, Patrick (Naomi) Kish, Timothy (Teresa Masiarczyk) Kish and Tiffany (Eric Meyers) McKane; and the joyful great-grandmother of Kevin McKane, Patrick McKane, Savannah Rheinhart, Seamus Kish and Sophia Meyers;  a sister, Gladys and many nieces and nephews.
