I knew Winnie through the Black Lung Coalition. I was so very saddened to hear of her passing. She was such a lovely person. My deepest sympathy to Winnie's family, co-workers and friends. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Winnie for the past 5 years through our Black Lung grant. She was always so bubbly and just made you feel at ease. My deepest sympathy to her family who she treasured so much. I too will miss her.

Remembering Winnie years ago from Lee, then Girl Scout events, and most recently having been blessed with working with her at Windber, it saddens so deeply me to think she is gone...and I just cannot imagine who will ever be able to bring the joy and inspiration Winnie brought to everything she did. Winnie had the unique gift of always looking ahead to what was possible and then doing it. A beautiful person, a role model for care givers and moms everywhere. Thank you Winnie and I will miss you.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Oldham family.

Please accept our deepest sympathy at your loss. Our prayers will be with the Oldham/Horner families.

Winnie was a wonderful person whom I got to know through the National Coalition of Black Lung & Respiratory Diseases Clinics. Her smile and laughter would light up a room. She made everyone feel welcome and at ease. She touched my life and I have thought of her many times over the past year. I will not forget her. Her family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers. Please accept my deepest sympathy.


I only knew Winnie for 4 years and I feel like I knew her forever. Always smiling even though I knew the pain she was suffering with.Every day that I went into her office I would ask her how she was doing and she would say,I am ok even though I could tell she was having a bad day with all the arthrites that she suffered with.Always had a smile and something nice to say.She had a face of an angel and I will always always keep her in my heart.She loved her family so much...

All of my memories of Winnie involve her laugh, her voice, her speaking of her wonderful kids, and husband. We worked along side each other in Pulmonary Rehab. So many memories, too many to mention. I just remember how beautiful my wedding was because she brought the entire choir from her church to sing in Vintondale. I will never forget it.
Winnie lit up a room wherever she was, and although she will be greatly missed, she has no more pain. May God bless all of you, and know that you...
