Devoted & loving Wife to the late John Tomlinson, loving mother to Brian, Peter & Pauline
And loving mother in law to Marie and Lesley. Cherished Gran and Great Grandma & good friend to many.
Winnie spent her younger years starting out in the RAF guiding in the planes.
Later she met John and set up home in Church & started a family of 2 boys and a daughter, when the family grew up she took her place at St Nicholas School Church as a teaching assistant where she enjoyed many a field trip with the children.
In her later years she took to looking after the grand children and spending time with the family. She had a love for gardening and flowers.
On a weekend she would take to crosswords and puzzles to keep her busy. She was a strong minded person with very strong views on right and wrong.
Winnie had a kind heart and will be deeply missed.
