It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that the family of Rose Marie Winkler (nee Cunningham) announce her sudden passing on Wednesday, July 15, 2020, at the age of 83.

Rose Marie will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 63 years, Jim; children, Andrea Sena (Roman), Michelle Gardner (Billy), and Michael Winkler; grandchildren, Lauren Singh (Bobby), Shannon Suhodolsky (Peter), Lisa Sena, Christina Sena, Roman Sena (Denael), Andy Sena (Alicia), Deanna Sena, Shauna Sena, Jessica Rose Stauffer, Nicholas Stauffer, Katlyn Ryan (Pat), Mason Gardner, Brandon Winkler, Ethan Winkler, and Tyler Winkler; 21 great-grandchildren and 4 great-great-grandchildren; siblings; nieces and nephews; and beloved friends.

Rose Marie was preceded in death by her parents, Creighton and Marie Cunningham, and dear children, James M. Winkler and Cheryl A. Winkler.

Rose Marie was one of a kind. Anyone that was lucky enough to meet her was blessed with knowing a person they will never forget. She always put the needs and wants of others before her own. She was known for her "Rosie kisses" and always being seen with a baby in her arms. She will forever be remembered for her deep love, genuine appreciation, and pride in the accomplishments of her family. Her compassionate, selfless, loving personality will never be forgotten. Despite her hardships, she displayed strength and loved and trusted in God with her whole heart.
