Dolores P. “Phyllis” Winiarski, 91 of Lewiston and Fraser, passed away on Monday, February 10, 2020 at Munson Healthcare Otsego Memorial Hospital in Gaylord.
Born on February 19, 1928 in Detroit, Dolores was the daughter of Frank and Clara (Haska) Klimmer. On February 18, 1950 she married Benjamin “Bill” Winiarski in Detroit. They lived in St. Clair Shores for many years, where they raised their family. After Bill preceded her in death, Dolores lived in Clinton Township and had split her time the last three years living with her daughters in Fraser and Lewiston.
Dolores enjoyed time with her family. She was also an avid bingo, scrabble and card player, and she enjoyed reading.
Surviving are her daughters, Cindy (Leroy) Hall of Lewiston and Carol (Keith) Curlee of Fraser; grandchildren, Kim (Robert) Brittain, Ron (Bree) Hall, David (Darlene) Hall and Erica (Mike) Ross; great grandchildren, Megan, Ryan, Gracie, Shianne, Steffan, Rissa, Josiah, Toby, Mitchell, Daniel and Nora, and another little girl on the way; a great great grandchild, Freya; a sister-in-law, Joann Nitecki; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Bill; brothers George and Thomas; and sister, Beverly.
In keeping with her wishes, her family will remember her at a memorial gathering in Fraser later in the year.
