She married the love of her life, Joseph Alvey, in August 1978. They happily retired together in 1991 and spent many wonderful years traveling and seeking new adventures across the United States and Europe, living in Pueblo, Colo., Florida and Tucson, Ariz. Winnie was preceded in death by her husband, Joe; her parents; two brothers; and three sisters.
