I will miss you aunty win.

I first met Winifred some twenty years ago at the launch of the Oscar Natzka recordings CD and she would later become a dear friend. Wde kept in regular touch by phone and Whenever we were in Tauranga we would pay her a visit and be fascinated and spellbound by her memories of life as the wife of a famous opera singer and later, a Hollywood star. Winifred was herself an accomplished singer and but for her marriage to Oscar at a time when it was fashionable for a woman to put her husband's career before her own, she may well have become a star herself.

Their separation for much of the war, and Oscar's early death was tragedy enough and the loss of her three sons was more than anyn mother should have to bear but Winifred was a battler and always put on a brave face for her visitors. We would like Jan and the family for the wonderful care they gave Winifred in her final days, and offer them our warmest thoughts and condolences on the loss of a very remarkable lady who will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone fortunate enough to have known her.
