Our precious Mother passed into the Presence of Jesus, at sunset, May 25, 2015 with Norma Jean at her side. She had just enjoyed her 95th birthday celebration with her daughters and all her grand-daughters present.

Winnie was born in a mid-wife’s home in LaVerna, Saskatchewan on May 13, 1920. She taught school for nearly nine years. She married Morris Amos on July 30, 1947 and to this union were born three daughters: Verna Mae Dobson (Glenn), Norma Jean Lupul (Rod) and Ruth Thiessen (Garry).

Winnie lived in the Madison, Saskatchewan district until Morris’ death in 1996. She moved to Kindersley – then later to Watrous to be close to her daughter Ruth. In 2008 she moved to Coldstream Meadows and finally in 2013 to Creekside Landing to live nearby Norma Jean.

In spite of her physical limitations and the loss of her vision, she maintained a sweet and gentle spirit. She was so grateful for Dr. Schuch and the wonderful care aids and staff at Coldstream Meadows and Creekside Landing. She also appreciated the new and many friends whom she acquired here in Vernon.

Her Celebration of Life and burial will take place in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, June 4, 2015.

We feel incredibly blessed to have had Mom’s godly example and influence. We hear story after story of lives she has touched in her quiet and loving way. Our hearts ache for our loss but rejoice for her gain! Her memory will live on in the lives of her children and grandchildren forever.
