She and Jim successfully joined 3 families together as one and lovingly created a wonderful home for their 12 children, 18 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. She adored each and every one of them. While family was Win's priority, she had a small circle of close friends and loved spending time with them either on Lake Ave or Meadowview Lane.
