Obituary for Winona Ireland

Winona Ireland, 92, passed away in her sleep in Woodland on October 30, 2013. Winona was born August 13, 1921 in Los Angeles, California. She attended Winters High School and enjoyed dancing and playing tennis. Soon after graduating with the class of 1940, she worked at Roseberry’s Soda Fountain in Winters. At this time, Wayne Ireland came a-calling and the courtship began; they were married on November 16, 1940. Wayne’s work with Shell Oil Company before WWII took the couple to Carson City, Nevada, then Quincy, California and back to the Central Valley. After WWII, Wayne and Winona made Winters their permanent home. Winona was a homemaker and enjoyed cooking (some say she used too much garlic), volunteering for the Boy/Cub Scouts, PTA, teaching Sunday School and playing Bridge; she was a very accomplished (and competitive) Bridge player. Wayne and Winona had three children: Michael, Pattie and Tim. Wayne died in 1993; they were married for 53 years. Winona was proud of her children and was blessed with six grandchildren; Michelle Ireland Pascoe, Michael Ireland, Jr., Heidi Naekel Schrieber, John Wayne Naekel, Megan Ireland Gaudel and Timothy Ireland. She was further blessed with nine great grandchildren: Courtney Pascoe, Haley Pascoe, Kaitlyn Ireland, Maecie Ireland, Kellen Ireland, Owen Graeber, Mason Gaudel, Emma Gaudel and James Naekel. Graveside services will be held at the Winters Cemetery on Thursday, 11:00 a.m. November 7, 2013. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to Stollwood Convalescent Hospital, 135 Woodland Ave., Woodland, California, 95695.
