Condolence & Memory Journal

Just found Winnies obituary. She was a friend of my mother Lucy Cerchione over 60 yrs go. My mother was a hairdresser and did Winnies hair and then became great friends. Your family lived in Malden where my mother also lived. We r a family of four Bobby, Mary, Michael, and Cheryl. I remember ur parents taking us to different places. My mother was divorced and had no car. So sorry for your loss. Ur mother was a great person.

We were all very sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. Back in 2015 both she and our Mother were at Bear Hill at the same time and Diane brought her in to our Mother's room so they could visit with each other after all those years. It was such a nice trip down memory lane for the two of them. I remember going to the drive-in theater with your Mom and Dad because your Dad had a station wagon. Good times on Watts Street. Our deepest sympathies to the entire Williams family. The Gover Family

Words cannot express how deep my sorrow is because you were such a light in this family. Even though you are no longer with us physically, your light will continue to shine on in all of us and I will keep your love and the memories with me forever. I will miss you terribly but I can smile knowing that you are finally reunited with Grampy after being apart for so long and are both watching over all of us.
I love you with all my heart Nana! Always & Forever!

Although our Easter was a somber one this year I have to look up and smile thinking that Grampy just had the best Easter in 27 years.
I love you Nana and will miss you every day.

We are sorry for the loss of our wonderful aunt and your beautiful and special mom. We have so many fond memories of Aunt Winnie, Uncle Al and the Williams' cousins at the different family events "back in the day"--especially those after Christmas get-togethers! Aunt Winnie will always hold a special place in our memories and hearts. Love to all and may God give you the peace of knowing that Aunt Winnie rests peacefully in the arms of her Savior, Jesus!

How sad I am for all of Winnie's family. She was like a mother to me. She always had a big bright smile on her face and was always glad to see me. I have so many memories of this beautiful lady I could fill a book. What I remember most was her love for her family and for all of us that became part of that family. She is now in paradise with the love of her life Al imagine that meeting. I will miss the stories of bingo and her funny antics. Rest in paradise sweet Winnie look down on all of us who loved you and keep us safe.

Mom, I can't seem to find the words to express how I'm feeling since you left us. All I know is that there is a massive void; a very large hole in my heart that aches and an emptiness that I can't get rid of. I miss you already and will continue to love you until we are reunited one day. Give daddy a hug and kiss from me!
