Mrs. Winder was born Oct. 24, 1935, in Watseka, the daughter of Elmer W. and Clara Hecht Hartke. She married Warren Winder on April 16, 1955, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Buckley. He survives.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a son, Wesley Warren Winder.

Mrs. Winder graduated from Buckley High School in 1953. She worked for General Telephone of Paxton as a secretary, the Times Spirit newspaper in Milford and Watseka and Dr. Jon Link, a chiropractor in Milford. Before returning to Buckley, she and her husband lived in Paxton, Shannon and Milford.

Mrs. Winder was a member of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Milford, the Dorcas Society and the church choir. She enjoyed visiting with friends, neighbors and relatives. She took great pride in being a penny pincher and coupon clipper. She had a love for gardening and canning, but nothing meant more to her than reading her devotions and the Bible.

Memorials may be made to Our Savior Lutheran Church in Milford or Iroquois Memorial Hospice.
