She took great pride in her children, grandchildren and home. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends.

Wineka of York and Ella Wineka of Mechanicsburg; and her daughter-in-law, Kim Wineka, wife of Athie's late beloved son, David Wineka, who predeceased her in 2016. The family would like to express their gratitude for the quality care provided to their mother and grandmother during her last years, especially the great kindness shown by the staff of Misericordia.
