Dearest Miss Lilly,
Although you are gone your birthday is not forgotten. Happy Birthday in heaven.
Much love from your friends,
Pina and Luke
What a special lady- Peace to you Lilly-
I was lilly's milkman for many many years. She had the coldest refrigerator in westchester county. Lilly always had a great story to tell every time I went in the store. We all miss you Lilly, god bless you. Bill Logan
Hawthorne would not be Hawthorne without Winzig's Deli and what made it was the family. Fond childhood memories of Winzig's and Danny and Benny's soda shop. I was lucky enough to visit with Lilly in the deli before moving to North Carolina six years ago. I treasure those moments with this very special lady. Lilly left a legacy in all our hearts. RIP and God Bless!
Remembered Winzigs deli since I was 8 or 9. I Remember the B&G Pickle can and they were 5 cents...Everyone called her "Lil" but I always called her Ms. Winzig even till the last days I went in there and i'm now 54. A great person ! Rest in Peace...
We miss you Lilly, my prayers were answered when I asked God to bring someone wonderful in my life when I needed a good, kind friend the most. I shared over 30 years with you almost everyday. Thank You God for the opportunity to have Lilly on my route. May you now enjoy Mitzi and Poppa, and your brothers and sister. Let the music and dancing begin again.
Some of my fondest childhood memories revolve around our trips to Hawthorne to visit my mother's family and our visits with Lilly at the deli. She was the loveliest woman who told great stories and always remembered my brothers and I, despite only seeing us once or twice a year. We loved to walk down to her store for a roast beef wedge and a story. And she was a wonderful friend to my uncle, Ken Marschke, who used to help her at the store after he retired from the post office. She was a class act and a lot of fun and will be missed.
May the Lord bless you and may You rest in peace. I believe everyone in Hawthorne has great memories of You, your Mom, and the Deli. My brother and sisters and I will certainly miss You.
We were away this week and were so sorry to hear of your passing. We will miss you so much. You were such a lovely lady,so caring and so much fun to talk with. No words can describe how much you will be missed but you are with the angels and are at peace now. We love you dearly and our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Lilly was a breath of fresh air and a blessing to all who walked through her door! Living right up the street from Winzig's Deli, I cannot even count the number of times I did walk through her door. Besides getting a sandwich, a snack, or just one of her famous pickles, there was always time for catching up on recent happenings! She seemed to know everything! Lilly always wore a welcoming smile and shared her warm heart. She definitely was (is)a Hawthornelegend! Thank you, Lilly, for being such a big part of my childhood. May you rest in peace! Nancy (McCord) Tucker xxoo!
Although I haven't been to the deli in years, I have fond memories of Ms Winzig and her delicious roast beef sandwiches, listening to her stories as she made it, i think the reason they were so good was because they were made with such love...may you RIP
God bless your beautiful soul,Lilly.

My family lived on Pythian Ave in Hawthrone, I remember Lilly from the deli. I played with Michael as a child. Lovely lady...
Rest in Peace Lilly. Lilly always had a smile
Wonderful Lady,..You will be sorely missed. A great friend and neighbor growing up across the street from her...
She was a wonderful woman. I moved to Florida, but whenever I was in town I had to stop by for some of that special roast beef and a story. Rest in peace and know that you were adored.
All great memories of Lilly. My sister and I Loved her roast beef wedge and pickles. She will never be forgotten. R.I.P. Lilly
I remember Lilly since I was a child. Still talk about the roast beef and potato salad, all her stories. No matter who you were, she and the Winzig family always made you feel special. Heaven has gained another beautiful voice and soul. Rest in peace.
Wonderful memories of a wonderful woman! Thank you Lilly! Charlene Tierney Benincasa
My children grew up in Mt. Pleasant, eating "Mom's" potatoe salad. I was a young policeman when I first met the Winzigs, and can never forget the memories while visiting the store. Benny tried to help, but Lilly always told him to get out of the way, as he was holding her up. God Bless you Lilly and rest in piece. Johnny
Lilly will always be remembered for her "old time' kindness and genuine interest in everyone. As soon as I entered the store there was a sense of comfort that came over me. One day she was telling me about how "Poppa" and "Momma" would open the store for a few hours on Sunday afternoons in case people had Sunday visitors and needed some cold cuts. Yes, this was a "small town courtesy", accompanied by a generous heart!! I will miss all her wonderful stories about Hawthorne and "momma" and "poppa". How bless we were to have this wonderful lady in our lives!! A true treasure in Hawthorne and now with God!! RIP Lilly, have fun singing with the Angels!!! Evelyn DiMaio
She was a wonderful woman who always made you feel at home. She WAS Hawthorne! God bless her. She will be missed!
so many great memories of not just Lilly but her Mom and Benny ,,,, getting in the store on Sat and getting the potato salad Bless you Lily
While having to "endure" her never-ending stories, I would sit for about an hour just waiting for the best roast beef sandwiches ever put to bread. Years afterward, I would stop in and say hello, she'd forget who I was every time until I'd remind her that I gave her an old Winzig Deli calender. Then, she'd lighten up and say, "I remember. You had long hair then." While I haven't had a roast beef sandwich since 1979, I still talk about hers.
I remember Lilly very well and heard her sing once at the County Center. The Winzig family was very well known in Hawthorne and Lilly was "our opera singer". We were all very proud of her.
She was a beautiful woman. Ny condolences to the Winzig family.
One of the nicest persons we ever met. Alway had a smile , not just on her but to give to you. She was an Saint and will be dearly missed. God Bless you Miss Lilly.
To the woman who made the best roast beef in Westchester, and was the only one to still had pickles in the barrel. Some of my most cherished memories growing up in Hawthorne were when my sisters and brother would walk me down to her store. Lily you were nothing but love and we all loved you so dearly...Forever in my heart :( RIP xoxo Toni McCord
What a wonderful person. I grew up collecting Pop bottles for deposit and getting a Pickle at Winzigs deli when I was a child. She was always happy and had a good word for everyone. God rest her soul. My children will be saddened to learn of her passing. One in a Million, God got another good one.
When I opened a store next to Lilly I was blessed to be greeted by the sweetest lady ever! She came over with a plant and we instantly become friends. So caring and loving she always asked about my family members (by name of course bc her memory was amazing). I enjoyed many of her delicious roast beef sandwiches and listening to her great stories. She will be missed! RIP Lilly.....may God Bless you!
I remember getting Fish Cakes during Lent from the Deli, BEST EVER! My Condolences & Prayers go out to the Family, especially Teddy, OF COURSE I remember you <3
I used to deliver to the store back in the late 80's and early 90's when I drove a truck for Westchester Candy Supply, she was always cheerful and courteous, I have very fond memories of her and how the frig had the coldest soda's in the county! God rest her soul.. We all will miss her when she sang out "Winzig"
I've known Miss Lilly since I was a child. Whenever I was back in NY I would stop by the store. She loved to tell me stories about things she did with my mom in highschool. She was a ledgend and will be missed.
Lilly, we'll miss you deeply. To God and the Angels, you have a great story teller in heaven now. So, please o heavenly ones, I ask you to sit down, grab a heavenly version of a cool drink, and ask her to tell you the story about singing for the pope. You won't regret that you did. We Love you Lilly, The Brereton Family
i have nothing but wonderful memories of lilly and the winzig delicatesen
