Nancy was born in Charlie, Texas, on Dec. 27, 1924, to Mary Easter and Wheeler Wilson Gresham. She was the third of six children, including three boys and three girls. Nancy started working with the National Youth Association at the age of 16 during World War II, making $19 a month. Many would argue she never quit working from there.
In 1942, while working as a soda jerk at the Renfro Drugstore in downtown Fort Worth, Nancy met the love of her life, Joseph Daniel “Joe” Winterman. The couple received their marriage license on July 3, 1944, and officially exchanged vows at 1 a.m. in the morning on July 4th, in Weatherford, Texas. Over the next 20 years, they had four children: Felicia, Felix, Mary, and Lena. Nancy and Joe moved their family to Burleson in 1977.
Once in Burleson, Nancy started an in-home babysitting business and found her niche with local teacher’s children. These children and their families became a huge part of Nancy and Joe’s lives for the next 22 years until she retired from babysitting in 1999. Even after retirement, she continued to look forward to visits, calls, cards and general updates from “her” kids.
Nancy will be remembered for her strong work ethic and positive outlook on life. She loved laughing and having a good time. Nancy loved her family unconditionally and was truly the rock for so many who were close to her.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Daniel Winterman; daughter, Felicia Bounds and son-in-law, Joe Bounds; daughter-in-law, Frankie Winterman; and son-in-law, “Bob” Killion.
Survivors include her sister, Euna Jo Templeton; brother, Otis Gresham; sonm Felix Winterman, of Grandview, Texas; daughter, Mary Goldberg and husband, Jerry, of Richmond, Texas; daughter, Lena Kay Baggett, of Burleson, Texas; 12 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren.
