December 17, 1930 - January 21, 2017
Winona Improta Went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday January 21, 2017. Winona was a woman of great personal conviction with a loving family. She married the man of her dreams, had a son that she loved dearly and took great pride in. We all enjoyed her stories of childhood pets and their antics. Winona’s Father was a forester, her childhood was spent in rural America of the 1930’s and 40’s. The three sisters had a dog, a raccoon and a deer that had lost its mother. The raccoon was the funniest and had to learn the hard way that if you wash a sugar cube it tends to disappear. He did finely learn to eat his sugar unwashed! She fed anyone that was hungry and often a stray or even the neighbor’s cats that would stop by for a pet and a snack. Her Christian beliefs are very strong, supporting ministries known for feeding and taking care of people. Her Memory will always live in our hearts until we meet again. Winona was born December 17, 1930 in Florida, the family later moved to Georgia for much of her early life after she graduated from Nahunta High School the family returned to Florida living in Deleon Springs. She attended nursing school and graduated as a Registered Nurse. She specialized in the care of premature babies working in a number of hospitals following her husband in his military service. They moved to Daytona Beach in 1974 and Winona was a R.N. in the neonatal unit of Halifax Hospital where she was well known for her skill in the care of critically ill babies. Only the Lord knows how many people are alive today due to the care they received in her hands as premature infants. After a professional career of over 40 years she retired, to a quiet life in Port Orange Florida.
