Together they raised six children on their farm east of Herman, Minnesota. Winnie loved to garden, sew, bake, and go antiquing. She also enjoyed spending time at St. Charles Catholic Church whether it be decorating or organizing special events. The Legion Auxiliary was also the beneficiary of her time and talents. With six children and six grandchildren, Winnie spent a lot of time attending various sporting events, plays and band concerts. She absolutely loved shopping.especially for red and black clothing. Although she was unable to do as much in her later years, Winnie still loved "going" anywhere, any time, or any place. Winnie just loved riding in the car. Of all the things Winnie enjoyed doing, what she truly loved the most was spending time with her husband and family.
