"Terri, Keep the sweet memories of your loving Mother in your heart forever. She must have been a wonderful lady as she certainly raised a wonderful daughter. I am so glad you were able to be with her to say good by. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you, John and all your family and friends."

"Words can not express my deep felt sympathy at your loss.  Your mum just by being at the other end of the telephone helped me cope with my mum's passing.  I have no words to express how much I will miss talking to her.  How lucky you, Mike and Marty were to have her (and of course Uncle John).  I just hope your kids and grandkids know what a wonderful and loving person (Aunt) Winifred was."

This tribute was added by John Fitzgerald on 6th November 2011

"How can I express what a 51 year relationship means in a few words.  For the last 19+ years Winifred was not just my mother-in-law but my only "Mom".  I think of the many conversations we had, not just about family, but also about a wide range of topics, especially about managing people and things, politics, travel, faith, spirituality, etc.  Those memories are with me forever. Love, John"

"Although I didn't see Aunt Winnie as often as others I recall her smiling face and genuine interest in the family whenever we talked. A remarkable and caring person who gave encouragement and hope to those who were in need of comfort. To cousins Terri, Michael and families our thoughts and prayers are with you. Your Mother will be fondly remembered.  With Love, Mark and Leslie, Grimsby ON."

"Hi Terry, John and Michael. I want to say just how saddened I am at the passing of my Auntie Winnie. I'm lucky that I have known both your mom and dad. They have been very important parts of my family life, and you know how important family is to any Novisedlak. I'll be thinking of my "Novisedlak" family in California and Florida over the next while. Take care, and God bless.

With love,

Pete"

We had some really good times together especially when she and John visited us in Germany for several months. Sadly, there will be no more such visits. Barbara and I will sorely miss her. Rest in peace Win."
