Mary Katherine McElfresh Winstead, 78, of Henderson, KY and formerly of Charlestown, IN passed away on Friday, October 25, 2019 in Henderson, KY.
Mary was always smiling: if she wasn’t smiling, she was laughing. She loved to travel and was a talented baker. Her gingersnap cookies were renowned , which is to be expected for one whose nickname was the “gingersnap lady”. Mary was a devout Methodist and attended regularly. She enjoyed memberships at Bennett Memorial Methodist, and the First United Methodist Church in Charlestown. Mary’s hobbies included cross stitching, doing crossword puzzles, reading and singing in the choir. More than all this, Mary treasured the time she spent with her family.
Mary was preceded in death by her husbands Guy McElfresh and Cletus Winstead, son Glenn McElfresh, and granddaughter Angela Martin.
Mary is survived by her daughter Susan Martin and her husband David of Underwood, IN; sisters Ann Hampton of Hanson, KY and Susan Harmon and her husband Don of Henderson, KY; brother Curtis Frederick and his wife Barbara of Madisonville, KY; grandchildren Katherine Nicole Martin, Ethan Martin and his wife Makala, Andrew McElfresh and his wife Chelsie, and Megan McElfresh; great grandson Guy McElfresh; and many nieces and nephews.
Relatives and friends are invited to Mary’s Life Celebration from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Sunday October 27, 2019 at Tapp Funeral Home in Henderson, KY. Her Life Celebration will continue with visitation on Monday from 11:00 am until her Life Celebration Service at 1:00 pm at Grayson Funeral Home in Charlestown.
