Obituary of Winona June Trimble

August 20,1922 Winona June Wester was born in Drakesboro, Kentucky.  She was the eldest of six children. She attended a one room school house. Applying her habit of listening to what the teacher said, regardless of grade level, she was able to complete eight years in six. 

Along with siblings and cousins she discovered the beauty and mystery of the woods. At fifteen this changed when her family moved to Chloride, Arizona. Rocks and sand now replaced the remarkable vegetation of the woods. 

After graduating for Kingman High School and working at a grocery store, she moved to Phoenix to study business. Living at the California Inn she met her future husband, Jack Trimble. 

They married, built a home and had three children. Sadly, Jack died October 10,1949. She attended Phoenix College, Mesa Community College and Arizona State University. She had a career working as a bookkeeper. At 95, she received her A.A. degree from Phoenix College. 

She is survived by her children, Dick (Dee), Marilyn Bogart (Mark) and Doug (Ginny), ten grandchildren, nine greatgrandchildren and sixteen great- great grandchildren all of whom hold a special place in her heart.
