Ms. Winnie Irene Goertz, age 78, of Waynesville, Mo., passed away on February 25, 2021 at Jefferson City Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Winnie was born on March 19, 1942 in Austin, Mn., the daughter of Harold Aaron and Evelyn Irene (Burcomb) Thompson. She was married on September 27, 1959 to David John Paul Goertz, who preceded her in death in 2002.

Winnie had a very caring heart and was proud to contribute to the VFW, AARP, the Wounded Warrior Project, and St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

Winnie adored her family and spent her life as homemaker for her family. She especially cherished the family gatherings they all had together. Winnie enjoyed going shopping, traveling, and cooking. She also liked Winnie the Pooh, Elvis and her beloved dog bear Goertz.

Survivors include: five children, Dennis and Dodie Goertz, Dale and Liz Goertz, Donald and Trudy Goertz, Dawn and Eric Compton, and Douglas and Amanda Goertz; five sisters, Colleen, Rosie, Anita, Bessie, and Joanie; grandchildren, Wayne and April, Sarah and James, David Ray, Don David, Denny, Ericka and Zach, Aggie and Christopher, Andrea, Voliet, and Charles; and great-grandchildren, Peyton, Konner, Jaxon, Destiny, Melanie, Don David Jr., and Jessica.

Winnie was preceded in death by her loving husband; her parents; one son, Dean Goertz; three sisters, Alice, Sadie, and Evelyn; and two brothers, Billy and Cecil.

Private graveside services for the family will be held at a later date.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.
