Winifred M. Gonda, 93, passed away peacefully Tuesday morning, in the comfort of her home, surrounded by her family. Winifred was born on November 17, 1923 in Peekskill, NY to Thomas and Claire Wilson, sharing a loving childhood with her siblings: Claire, Charlie, Beverly, Patricia, and Regina.
She married the love of her life, John L. Gonda ( who predeceased her in 1969), and poured her heart into raising their 8 children.
Her spirit lives on through her 8 children: Diana (Frank) Scarfo, Kathleen (John) Peccorino, Susan Gonda, Eileen (Al) Cardona, Jeanne Gonda, John (Janet) Gonda, George (Jane) Gonda, and William (Lisa) Gonda; her 7 grandchildren: Stacy, Bill, Dana, Nicholas, Derek, Kyle, and Matthew; her 4 great-grandchildren: Michael, Joe, Julia, and Alexandra; 1 great-great-grandchild: Aiden; and her many other beloved relatives.
Winnie lived with patience, wit, and grace and she shared her beauty and kindness with everyone she met. She will be deeply missed by all who were blessed to know her. Her gentle soul has joined ranks with the angels she so adored.
A mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 11:00 am on Friday, December 16, 2016 at St. Christopher's Church, 3094 Albany Post Rd., Buchanan, NY. Burial will follow at the Assumption Cemetery, Cortlandt Manor, NY. In lieu of flowers kindly make a donation to the Dementia Association.
