"Winnie"
Dau of William G Borchelt

Grandmother of four

Was house matron of Pemberton Hall (the only girls dormitory at that time) at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois, for many years.

Lived with her only daughter Helen her whole life, even after Helen married V.A. Jones. She was her grandchildren's one and only nanny and was certainly a major part of their lives.
