Ella jane Winburn, 76, a Modesto resident 16 years, died yesterday at a local hospital following a brief illness.
A native of Nashville, NC, she was a member of the Maze Boulevard Christian Church.
Survivors are daughters Ina Zegers of Santa Barbara and Olive Mortimer of Modesto; sisters Writa Woods of Long Beach and Eva Collins of Wichita, Kansas; 11 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
Services are pending at the Salas Brothers Funeral Chapel. =========================================================
I found her living on 963 7th Street in the 1966, 1964, 1962 and 1960 city directories. She was listed as "(wid. John)". There were no Winburns in the 1958, 1956 or 1954 directories. There is only one John Winburn on the CDI that has 1940 - 1997
There are no Winburns who died in Stanislaus County that look reasonable. If you can find a death date for John I'll look for his obituary. If he lived in Modesto but died elsewhere (SCUBA diving in Maui, for instance) he might have had an obit.
I'll send you a copy of the obituary if you send me your postal address privately.
Salas Brothers are still in business, if you'd like to write to them for funeral records.
I do these to pay back people who have done favors for me and didn't need anything done for them in my county. If you have the time, energy and inclination to do likewise, look at the GenForum board for your county.
