Winnifred Anne Gauthier

Winnifred “Winnie” Gauthier, beloved wife and mother, passed into peace surrounded by loved ones on Nov. 12, 2013, at her Mariposa home.

She was 84 years old. Born in Ottawa, Canada, Winnifred moved to Mariposa in 1981, where she and husband Nelson established a home and tranquil refuge for their large, extended family.

She loved gardening and classical music, and was a lifelong student and devotee of the Roman Catholic faith. Winnifred is survived by her husband of 66 years, eight daughters, seven sons, 33 grandchildren, 28 great grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild.

A funeral mass and rosary in her honor was attended by many at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church on Nov. 16.

“Rest in peace gentle woman. You illuminated our lives, and we are forever grateful for your full life and loving example.”
