Grandma Winegar

Evelyn Winegar
March 7, 1922- August 9, 2011

Evelyn Argyle Winegar 1922 ~ 2011 BOUNTIFUL- Our dearest Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother quietly passed away on Tuesday, August 9, 2011 at the age of 89 after a courageous battle with Alzheimer's. Evelyn was born March 7, 1922 to Thomas M. Argyle and Mary Jane Corbett. She married her sweetheart, Stuart M. Winegar on August 13, 1941. They will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary together after being separated in death by only 19 days. Spunky and full of life, she was an Instigator, an "Idea Person." She planted many seeds that developed into full-blown inception. Though she took a supporting role, she was the backbone of the family business, Winegar's Supermarkets, Inc. Happiest when serving others, she took many souls under her wing, inviting many into her home for long periods of time. The recipients of her generosity and loving nature are spread throughout the world. Not the least of these was her beloved grandchildren. She took great delight in them, showering her affections upon them with sleepover's and birthday parties. She was the Hostess with the Mostess! She will be sorely missed by them all. Active in the LDS church, she served in many capacities, including twice as Relief Society President. She served a mission with her husband, Stuart, to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Preceded in death by her husband, Stuart; her parents; brothers, Doug Argyle and Clarence Argyle; grandson, Zachary Winegar; and two great-grandchildren, River McQueen and Jaycee Winegar. She is survived by a sister, Jane Page; a brother, Dean Argyle (Larue); and children, Sally Barber (Phil), Dee (Gail), Dirk (Linda), Bill (Barbara), and Rock (Susanne); 29 adoring grandchildren; 59 great grandchildren; and four great-great-grand-children.

What an amazing, amazing Grandma I had! I will always remember her spunk, strength and laughter. I have so many memories of my Grandma growing up, she loved each and every one of us so much. I loved her kisses and hugs every time we saw her. I loved her stories. I can't wait to see my Grandma again. To hear that laugh again :) She joined my Grandpa 19 days after he had passed and I know they are so happy together forever now!
