She met and married the love of her life, Fred McEntire and raised their family in the Lamb community. Winna Mae worked in the school district and drove a school bus for many years. She left this world still working at the Senior Citizens Center in Waldron. She will forever be remembered by a host of nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends.

She loved the holidays and family
dinners and never hesitated to play a game with her grandchildren or those
special great
grandchildren. Turkey Track and local dances were some of the things
she loved along with her absolute favorite of shopping. She never met a
stranger and always spoke her mind with a smile. She could light a room by just
her presence and the world got a little bit dimmer with her
