Hensel, Winifred  
Winifred Edith "Winnie" Hensel 1928-2015 Winifred Edith "Winnie" Hensel, age 86, passed away peacefully at home on the morning of August 20, 2015. Born in Pascagoula, MS, Winnie married the love of her life, Peter J. Hensel, Jr. at age 19, and together they raised four children; each of whom Winnie privately assured was "her favorite". Winnie, a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother was known for her outgoing personality, quick wit and humor. She was an excellent cook, and would happily "share" her recipes, but somehow they never seemed to taste as good as when she made them. Winnie was a faithful parishioner at St. Jude's Catholic Church in Cantonment for over 40 years, and was active in the Catholic Women's Deanery Council. Winnie's husband, Pete, of 67 years, preceded her in death January, 2015. Also preceding her in death are her parents, Benjamin and Winnie Dick; two sisters, Florine Powell and Jeanette Daly; and three brothers, B.J., Peter, and Malcolm Dick. Winnie is survived by her sister, Jeannine Thomson (George) of Ocean Springs, MS and children, Carol Moore (Joe) of Milton, Randall Joseph Hensel, Sr. (Sharon) of Pensacola, Gary W. Hensel (Donna) of Cummings, GA, and Mark E. Hensel of Ft. Lauderdale; along with six grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Winnie was under hospice care for over 2 ½ years, and her family wishes to thank Emerald Coast Hospice for the compassionate and loving care they provided. Our heartfelt thanks also go to her personal caregivers, Tammy Dykes, Tami Robinson, and Belinda Martin, whose loving care allowed her to remain in her home until her death. They are truly angels here on earth. Visitation will be held Friday, August 28, 2015 at Faith Chapel Funeral Home North, 1000 Hwy. 29 South, Cantonment, FL from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m..
