Olds whom she wed on Nov. 19, 1941; and her siblings, Emerson Beal, Russell Beal, Eleanor Boothby, and Martha Tuttle. Winnie is survived by her daughters, Lynda Breton and her husband Gary of Sierra Madre, Calif., Leslie Brown and her husband James of Palm Harbor, Fla., and Lorna Tipton and her husband Gerald of South Portland; grandchildren, Mike Breton, Doug Perry, Jenn Tipton-Beard, and Mark Tipton; and her great- granddaughter, Hayley Breton.
