Winn McFadden was peacefully called into the presence of the Lord on January 29, 2021. The beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend was 68 years old.

Winn is survived by her husband of 48 years, Dilda McFadden; as well as by her daughter-in-law Sara McFadden (Kevin); daughter Wendy Jayne (Tim) and son Dion McFadden (Courtney). Winn will be deeply missed by her nine grandchildren, Nathan, Kyra, Taiylor, Kaden, Dodge, Lexington, Bohdi, Tyson and Teighan; as well as by her brother Timothy Gavin (AnaMaria) and sisters Pamela Gavin (George), Kimberly McGarvie (Patrick), and her sister in spirit Bobbie Valenzuela.

Dilda and McFadden Family:
I worked with your mother in the late 1980s. She was always there to support me with issues of North End families and I valued her for that.
May our Sweet Lord and Mother Mary guide you through these difficult times.
Respectfully,

I knew did not know Winn well but I remember that she and I prepared a dance routine for our Modern Dance final at Imperial Valley College. We chose a Roberta Flack song. She was pleasant and kind. I pray for her family and her grandchildren, all who I am sure will miss her terribly.
