McGaughey, Winnie - Quincy  
Winnie McGaughey, 89, of the Good Samaritan Home of Quincy passed away peacefully Monday, Feb. 1, 2016. She had been a resident of Quincy since 1948 and lived at Good Samaritan since 2006. Winnie was born Nov. 25, 1926, in rural Barry. She was the 10th of 11 children to Mary and William DeJaynes. Raised in the country, she often related stories to her children and grandchildren of what it was like growing up on the farm, using mules to farm and living through the Great Depression and World War II. Following World War II she met her future husband, Albert, in Barry through mutual friends, and they were married Sept. 14, 1948, in Quincy. They had two sons, James (Cathy) McGaughey of Villa Grove and Steven McGaughey of Longmont, Colo. Other survivors include two grandchildren, Carrie (Nathan) Kiser of Villa Grove and Seth (Amy) McGaughey of Villa Grove; four great-grandchildren, Gavin and Piper Kiser and Cameron and Elliot McGaughey; one sister, Bonnie, of Pittsfield; a special devoted nephew, Keith McGaughey of Quincy; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband (1989); her parents; six brothers; four sisters; and a grandson, James Alex (Jake) in 2001. Winnie was an excellent cook and enjoyed baking delicious and sometimes "entertaining" cakes. She was often asked to create them for many special occasions. She spent time traveling with her sister-in-law Dorothy Kanauss, taking bus tours around the country. She was always appreciative of the various regions of our country and the people she got to meet. During these travels, she was also able to see several of her favorite country and western singers. When in the midst of a good band, Winnie could often be seen on the dance floor. Being raised on a farm, Winnie enjoyed and appreciated the outdoors. When caring for her son's dogs, she would enjoy taking long walks, taking in all the scenery and being aware of the subtle changes that nature always brought out. Winnie got to see her grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow up. She always got a kick out of whatever they were doing, the activities they enjoyed and the shenanigans they would get away with. She could always spot a good story for later on by watching the interaction of her grandkids with the world. Winnie and her husband enjoyed and listened to a variety of music. Living in Quincy, they were strong supporters of the numerous musical talents that abound in the local area. Both parents strongly encouraged their sons to practice on a steady basis. Both sons still find the enrichment that music can bring to life. When you think of Winnie, you think of someone who was an extremely kind-hearted person who always saw the positives in the people she met. She was always encouraging to those around her and would give all her energy to help someone. Whenever the holidays came around, Winnie and Albert made sure that their friends and relatives had someone to enjoy the meals and the camaraderie with. All attempts were made that no one would be alone during the times meant for family gatherings. Winnie will be missed, but the level of love in her heart will forever shine in the memories of those who knew her. SERVICES: 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 4, at Hansen-Spear Funeral Home, with the Rev. James Riley conducting. Burial will be in Greenmount Cemetery. VISITATION: Noon to 1 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home. MEMORIALS: Good Samaritan Home of Quincy or Davita Dialysis Services. ARRANGEMENTS: Hansen-Spear Funeral Directors. WEBSITE: . Condolences may be expressed online at .
