Maria "Winnie" Owen Obituary

Maria "Winnie" Owen, born in Manila, PI on July 29, 1928, passed away on March 10, 2015 after a stroke. Winnie was a special lady to all who knew her. Whether wife, mother, sister, grandmother, auntie, or friend, she warmed the hearts of all who had the pleasure of her company. She had a never ending smile, especially when with her grandkids. She cherished her time with Chuck, the love of her life, who preceded her in death by eight months. Winnie and Chuck danced, golfed, traveled and played bridge with their many friends. They were faithful servants of the Lord and raised their children to know and love God. Winnie's death is a great loss to all who knew her, but we can take comfort in the knowledge that she will await our reunion in heaven with a big smile and open arms.

Winnie is survived by her children, Janet Carrere, Marsha Kinsman-Wilkinson (Steven), Karen Clemans (Dwayne), Mike and Brian; eleven grandchildren, and thirteen great grandchildren, her sister, Helen Pitre (Pete), numerous relatives, and many dear friends.

A Mass will be recited on Saturday, March 14th, at noon, at Holy Rosary Church, 301 Walnut St. Woodland, CA with a Celebration of Life immediately following at Cracchiolo's Market Banquet Hall, 1320 E. Main St., Woodland.

Private interment will be held on Friday, March 13, 2015 at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donation be made in Winnie's name to St. John's Retirement Village Activities Room Fund, 135 Woodland Ave., Woodland CA 95695.
