Winnie loved to sing and dance. She met the love of her life, at a dance hall in Edinburgh, Scotland. In her youth, Winnie was a chorus girl on the stage along with her sister Jean, known as the Coyle sisters during the 50s.

After marrying, Winnie’s next adventure would be to travel by ocean liner to Canada with her husband & 2 small daughters. Winnie was extremely proud to sing at the Captain’s dinner. The family arrived in Montreal during Expo 67. They settled in Kitchener and had another child, a son.

After raising her children, she went to work at the University of Waterloo food services department. She worked in Village 2 for over 25 years until she retired. After retiring, Winnie and Alex enjoyed traveling. She continued traveling until well into her late 70s.
