Obituary for Katherine Elizabeth Winchester

Katherine E. Winchester departed this life to join her Savior Jesus Christ on Monday December 27, 2018. Katherine was born on March 27, 1935 in Sherman, Texas to Steve and Adena Scruggs. She was one of thirteen children, having five brothers and seven sisters. After graduating from Fred Douglas High School, she married her high school sweetheart, Wayne Winchester on August 20, 1954. Wayne was an Airman in the United States Air Force, this is where their united journey of un-wavering love and devotion took flight. For 30 years she traveled with her husband in the military. Upon his retirement they returned home to Sherman, Texas.

Katherine was a loving, devoted and treasured wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sibling and friend. She was a dedicated member of the Friendly Church of God and Christ in Sherman. Katherine was loved, not only by her family, but also by all those she joyfully met and unselfishly served. She was known for her kind and loving spirit, always greeting those she knew, as well as those she did not know, with her beautiful smile and a warm hello.

She was continuously spreading her love and warm spirit to others throughout her community. She volunteered her time visiting and caring for the elderly and those in need. Partaking of her nurturing spirit she brought happiness and joy to others with her culinary talents, and her gift in creating beautiful floral arrangements.

Katherine is survived by her husband, Wayne Winchester, their three daughters Sandra Daniels, Melva Parcher, and Gloria Dunbar, twelve grandchildren Allison Daniels, Katherine Daniels, Alicia Daniels, Timothy Winchester, Cyrus Winchester, Alvin Wesley, Steven Wesley, Kevin Broadnax Jr., Michael Winchester, Jaelon Stith, Jerome Alexander Stith, and Mekayla Winchester, five great grandchildren, Zayden Daniels, Triston Winchester, Kevin Ryder Broadnax, Elizabeth Wesley, and Dax Adams, and many other family members and friends. She will be forever loved and cherished.
