    Everyday that I would come into work she would raise her hands up as if she didn’t see me for a very long time even though she saw me all most everyday she would always come to my side and greet me with a smile followed with a warm hug she was the sweetest person I knew and I’m so thankful that I got to spend as much time with her as I could I haven’t stopped crying since I got the news I loved her with all my heart and she made my days coming to work bright and I will forever miss her I’m very sorry for your lost and I will be praying for your family

    Ms. Winnie was the crossing guard at Ensley Elementary for many years. Ms. Winnie went on to become a volunteer at the school. She and her husband would bring their RV to the school for the children to experience a different type of vehicle during Transportation Week. She loved Ensley and we loved her. She was loving and kind. Ms. Winnie always had a pleasant word of kindness to share. May God bless the family and give you peace during this difficult time.
