Mrs. Winchip will always be a fond memory for me. She was my swimming and lifesaving instructor during the Summer. It was always fun going to Houghton College, but even better when she taught us at her own pool. A lifelong skill that I will pass on to my children and theirs. With sadness I will miss you.

Our sympathy and thoughts are with you.The Winchip family was a big part of our lives as my father Harmon Miller worked for them for 30 + yrs. I played golf with Chita in member guest tournaments. Loved her wit and personality. Fond memories of their important business role in the Fillmore community at one time. I remember the steak picnics at Letchworth park. Soo sorry to hear of her passing...patti Miller pickup
