    Winnie will truly be a blessing at God’s table as she was here on earth. She was part of the trio of Stephens sisters, Mabel and Catherine that made your heart glad and your lips smile anytime you saw them out and about. I am certain they were eagerly awaiting her arrival at heaven’s gate, as much as she will be missed we have to smile to think of her journey here on earth and her eagerness for the Lord. Judy my heart goes out to you and the family for your loss. Linda Gingerich
