Obituary for Edwina Marie "Winnie" Frost
Winnie passed away with grace and gratitude to her caregivers after a short battle with lung cancer.
She will be remembered by her loving husband Jack Frost. She will also be missed by her family including her mother Doris Schwalbach, sisters Judy Schwalbach, Kathy (Bill) King, Candy (Glenn) Guminski and her brothers Joseph (Ginny) Schwalbach and Richard (Shelly) Schwalbach.
She will also be missed by her mother-in-law Eleanor Frost, brother-in-law's Dennis (Cynthia) & Bill (Patti) and her sister-in-law Eleanor (Frost) Lutz.
Winnie worked at Professional Business Manager as Office Manager for 23 years, and Sydney Services Corporation for 16 years before retiring in 2015. She was always admired for her organizational skills, her attention to detail and a great friendly spirit.
Winnie's hobbies included sewing, gardening, canning and photography. She played cards with her mother-in-law Eleanor Frost who was her Best Friend and had a card club with longtime friends as well. Some of the best times were with Jack at their cottage or listening to Jack play his Jazz saxophone.
Winnie and Jack were married in l971 and in their earlier years could be found most warm summer days out skiing on Round Lake. Winnie would drive the boat with precision when Jack was on the end of the tow rope and when it was Winnie's turn, it would be Jack behind the wheel.
In the winter it was off to the slopes for snow skiing. Winnie was an excellent snow skier and worked for a time with the Ski Patrol at Wilmot, Wisconsin. Winnie and Jack would make many trips to the mountains out west skiing mostly in Colorado where you would find them together skiing on the hardest and most challenging runs.
Fishing became a passion after age took away the desire to ski. Winnie and Jack took on fishing like they did skiing. They made trips together with guides to learn the secrets and Winnie learned the craft well. She always caught fish and could throw a fly as well as anyone. It was much fun to experience Winnie's enthusiasm. The smallest of fish were landed with the same amount of roar and laughter as if it were the biggest fish in the lake. The fun for others was addictive because of her.
Winnie lived a great life always ready for an adventure and always willing to spend time with Jack no matter what he wanted to do. lf Jack was working on a project and needed a hand, Winnie would be right at his side. She always had his back. She would spend many great times with family and always doing her part.
Winnie loved life and life loved her. She loved being with people and people loved being with her. Her wonderful smile and laugh would let everyone know she was having fun.
Winnie leaves behind admiration and respect for a life well lived. She lived life the way you're supposed to.
Her smile and laughter will be remembered by those that witnessed her wonderful life. God shared Winnie with us so we could learn from her how life should be. The world has become a better place because of Winnie. But, it will not be the same without her!
