1947 - 2006
Wynola was born in Summit, OK on April 23, 1947, to Acil and Eddie (Thomas) Winn. Later the family moved to Muskogee, Oklahoma, where she enjoyed the love of parents and eight siblings. She professed faith in God early in life uniting with Old Agency Baptist Church. She always lived in harmony with God where ever she made her home. In Salina, Kansas she united with St. Johns Missionary Baptist Church. After moving to Wichita, KS, she united with New Salem Baptist Church. Wynola was a faithful member, working in many church organizations (choir, usher board, Sunday School, Missionary and others.) Her formal education was in the Muskogee School System. She graduated from Manual Training High School, in 1966.
She took control of her life and enjoyed the adventures of solving her problems on her own, even in the toughest of times. Because of Her courage, kindness, and generosity toward mankind, and Godís love and guidance, she adopted her daughter Nichole Joy Winn. She was a loving and caring Mother, and later a proud Grandmother.

After spending five decades in Godís earthly garden (59 years), God had the perfect time to gather flowers from His garden.
