Winifred Mary Milne, 93, of Haskins, Ohio, went to join her Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 6, 2013.
Winnie was born on January 10, 1920 in Wayne, OH to Arnim and Lucy (Benschoter) Simpkins. She graduated from Cygnet High School and attended Spring Arbor Junior College. After attending Spring Arbor Junior College, she furthered her knowledge in Christ by attending the Paul Moody Bible Institute in Chicago.
On May 14, 1951 she married William H. (Scotty) Milne and he preceded her in death in April, 1968.
Winnie retired from LeGalley Insurance Agency and had previously worked for Farm Loan in Bowling Green.
She served on the Haskins City Council for 11 years and was also their former president. As recognition of Winnie's long residency and her years of service to the community, the village of Haskins named a street in her honor.
She was a member of the Bowling Green Breakfast Kiwanis Club and the Alliance Church of Bowling Green. In addition to being a devout Christian, Winnie was an avid reader and enjoyed discussion on current affairs and scripture. She was an inspirational woman and many would seek her guidance and advice. She also loved to cook and garden.
Winnie will be missed by her son, William David (Vickie) Milne of Woodville, two granddaughters, Heather and Hayley, sister, Betty Feltman of Cygnet and nephews and nieces.
She was preceded by her parents and by a brother, Donald Simpkins.
