Shirley J. Winnard, age 86, died November 17 after a courageous battle with dementia, surrounded by her loving family.

Shirley was born February 22, 1933 to Karl H. and Marguerite Borden Janssen.

On April 16, 1955, she married Philip C. Winnard and began 64 years of marriage.

Shirley was loved by everyone whose life she touched. She knitted hundreds of baby sweater sets, childrens’ sweaters, adult sweaters, and animals, especially her beloved ladybugs and Teddy bears. Shirley’s baking was legendary, especially those molasses cookies!

Survivors include her husband, son, Philip Jr. "Chip", daughters, Joni Winnard and Barbara Standish, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her sister Margaret Rice and brother Richard.

The family extends their sincere thanks to the staff at Mount Greylock Extended Care and Dr. Barry Lobovits for the professional and loving care given to Shirley during her stay there.
