    Beautiful soul who was so proud of her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. I feel honored to have known her and loved her! Sending lots of hugs and love to the family during this difficult time.

    Aunt Winnie was loved by all. A prolific baker, the extended family all looked forward to her rolls and desserts that she brought to grandma’s family gatherings. She was a strong person who loved her family deeply and was a devoted Catholic. I will miss her smile and lively spirit and know that she is in the arms of our Lord and Blessed Mary and surrounded by the family that awaited her in the next life. May she rest in peace. My prayers and thoughts are for all the family at this time! Love Kathleen Kouba Muhle

    To the Kouba family. We were so sorry to hear about Winnie’s passing. She was a wonderful, generous woman to all who knew her. May the happy memories you have of her sustain you. Rest in Peace, Winnie

    I was very honored and blessed to have met such a wonderful woman. She was always smiling. She told me one time that you never stop missing your husband when he dies. So what a joy it must of been for her. to meet up with him again and others that had gone before her.

    What a soul, on earth, & in Heaven. Blessed to have known Winnie at St. Mary’s, Dairy Twist, & driving past the Kouba’s Estates daily to work, these past 13 years. Bless her loving spirit, and the many people touched by her kindnesses through her well lived life.
