Elizabeth Radovich Winnicki
Betty Winnicki, 91, formely of Miller Street Luzerne has gone gallivanting. Betty will be on the lookout for the best of bargains for all her family and friends.
Born March 11, 1921 in Luzerne she was a daughter of the late Dushan and Verinica Smida Radovich.
Twin sister Genevie Kinger, sisters Vera Kuzma and Ann Alaimo, brothers Steve, Nickolaus, George and Joseph Radovich preceded her in death.
Betty was Louis Paul Winnicki's better half and co-proprietor of Louie's Bar Hunlock Creek, PA. Where no one went home thirsty, hungry or broke. The only rule was good laughs and good times were here again. Betty was also a nurse’s aide in the baby ward at the Nesbitt Memorial Hospital during the war. She always worked at jobs where she served her fellow man; whether it was waitressing at the Boston Store, making pastries at the Percy Brown bakery or as a CNA for the Leader Nursing Home in Kingston before Agnes and afterward for the Home Health Care Wilkes-Barre before retiring in 1980.
She was a loving and guiding mother of Frank, Rita, Zigmond and Joseph Winnicki. Supportive mother-in-law to Wanda and Nancy Winnicki. A beaming grandmother of Ray and Robert Hunter, Debra Shuga, Lisa Neuendorf, Matthew, Jennifer and Katrina Winnicki. Amazed that she would be blessed with thirteen great grandchildren; flabbergasted that she would ever live long enough to become a great-great grandmother.
The lady in the hat and wheel chair says thanks for the unlimited desserts and coffee at the Old Country Buffet and to Boscov's for door buster sales every day. Wheel of Fortune has lost an ardent fan and the PA lottery has lost a devoted instant bingo player.
My brother and I have lost our favorite foods on our birthdays, unlimited hugs and kisses and new socks every Christmas. Her smile will always be in our heart. She watches over us with her love as she walks with the Lord.
Betty made sure her children always wore socks and shoes because they were not to be country bumpkins. She made sure that her sons got a college education so that they would not have to dig ditches or work in the coal mines for a living. She made sure her sons stood tall and straight and walk like men who would be kings.
Betty Winnicki loved to laugh with abandon, dance as if no one was looking, cook as if she was feeding an army and love, yes always love unconditionally.
The family will have a memorial service for their matriarch at a future date. Condolences may be sent to Rita Winnicki P.O. BOX 145, Hunlock Creek, PA 18621 or Joseph Winnicki
6 Hunter Lane Barrington NH 03825.
