Elna Winward (1937-2018)

Elna Winward

Elna Winward, 81, of Nelsonville, died June 2, 2018.

Born Feb. 27, 1937, in Yorktown Heights, she was the daughter of Douglas and Elna (Tompkins) Nutly. She married Thomas Winward, who died before her.

As a mother and homemaker, Elna was extraordinarily devoted. She was an adept worker, whether it was on the assembly line or cleaning homes and doctors’ offices in her later years. In her more active years she loved to garden and canned, including her prize-winning zucchini relish. She was also a talented painter and loved to dance and listen to music, a passion she shared with her friends at the senior center.

Elna is survived by her daughter Chris Winward and her son-in-law, Chris Keeley, along with her grandchildren Danel Pecora Wilson, David Mathias Pecora and Colin Keeley; a great-grandson, Brenden Pecora; and a stepson, Herb Winward.

Visitation will be held Tuesday, June 5, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Clinton Funeral Home, 21 Parrott St., in Cold Spring. A funeral service will be held on June 6 at 11 a.m. Hillside Cemetery in Cortlandt Manor. Memorial donations may be made to the Philipstown Volunteer Ambulance Corp., 14 Cedar St., Cold Spring, NY 10516.
