Louise Ann Winski

Louise Ann Winski, age 85, formerly of Haven Lane, Millville, passed away early Tuesday, December 27, 2016 at the Springhurst Health Campus, Greenfield, Ind..

Born on September 7, 1931 in Luzerne County, she was the oldest daughter of the late Walter and Marcella  (Runchka) Novak. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 57 years, Leonard A. Winski, M.D. on May 14, 2009.

A devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Louise was most happy when cooking for a houseful of children, grandchildren and extended family, all arriving for the holidays or simply to gather at the table for a Sunday dinner or a summer pool party. She also enjoyed spending time reading, decorating her home and traveling to visit family and friends.

Louise was raised in Glen Lyon and graduated from the former Newport Township High School, and then shortly after, in 1952, she married the love of her life.  After living in Philadelphia and Wilkes-Barre, Louise and Leonard settled down in Millville in 1958, to raise their family of five children. She was a long time member of St. Columba Catholic Church, Bloomsburg.

She is survived by five children: David Winski, and his wife Laurel, Lubec, Maine; Christina, wife of Dennis Laska, Greenfield, Ind. Karen, wife of Terry Parham, Chesapeake, Va.; Sharon, wife of John Anderson, Milford; and  Annette, wife of Steven Spahr, Camp Hill.  Grammy enjoyed telling everyone about her 11 grandchildren: Dominic and Gabriel Winski; Alexis and Andrew Laska; Adam and Zachary VanDine; Lindsey Cochrane; Caitlin Anderson; and Elery, Aaron and Riley Spahr. Her family also includes great-grandchildren Cole, Ava, and  Zoe VanDine; her sister, Bernadine, wife of Basil Rudusky, Mountain Top; and her devoted sister-in-law, Joann, wife of Joseph Ackourey, Basking Ridge, N.J.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday at 10 a. m. in St. Columba Catholic Church, 342 Iron Street, Bloomsburg, by Monsignor Robert E. Lawrence. Private interment will be in New Rosemont Cemetery, Espy. Friends may call at the Church after 9:15 a. m. Saturday.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the Dean W. Kriner, Inc., Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 325 Market St., Bloomsburg.

Sorry for the loss of your love one. John 5 : 28, 29 assures us that Jesus will restore life to those who has died. Revelation 21 : 3, 4 gives further assurance that death will be swallowed up forever. These are wonderful blessings to look forward to knowing that your loved one is in God's memory. Hope this brings comfort.
