Obituary: Winnie Lorinda Carpenter

Born August 25, 1941, Winnie Lorinda Carpenter was a country western singer.

She performed with Freddie Hart and Slim Whitman and was often seen performing with Wayne Newton on television. She was once offered the opportunity to travel and perform but chose to “Stay Married” and raise a family. Winnie was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. In 1989, Winnie and Fred moved to Parks, Arizona, to live the quiet life they yearned for. She was taken from us too soon by cancer and will be missed by all.

Winnie is preceded in death by her father-Jesse Wayne Green, mother-Reed Menerva Pyle, sisters Ophelia Finley and Virginia Dugger and son-Freddie Wayne Carpenter.

She is survived by her husband Fred Carpenter, sons Mike (Tina), Dwane (Lisa), eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren with one great grandchild on the way.

We love you always.
