Posted in Preston Obituaries

Janice E. (Simonson) Winch of Rockford, Ill., passed away from a sudden illness on March 8, 2014. Janice was born on March 2, 1931, in La Crosse, Wis., the daughter of J. A. and Lucille

(Nelson) Simonson and was a 1949 graduate of Preston High

School. After Luther College, marriage to Charles Winch and relocation to Illinois, Janice was a substitute teacher for many years in the Harlem School District. She was proud of her childhood Norwegian roots in Minnesota — “Uff da!”

Janice and Charlie shared many memorable trips together and wintered for over 25 years on Lido Key in Sarasota, Fla. Janice was a loving and caring lifelong partner in marriage to Charlie for over 62 years, a very dear family-oriented mother to daughter Patricia and she relished doting on her grandson Erik.

Janice was a longtime bike rider, frequent walker, sunset enthusiast, lutefisk lover, pursued a health-conscious lifestyle and always believed in “doing the right thing.” She was an avid fisher lady from the waters of Canada to the shores of Florida.

Janice is survived by her husband Charles of Rockford, her daughter Patricia Kollberg of Loves Park, grandson Erik (Megan) Kollberg of Omaha, Neb., brother James (Rita) Simonson of Preston, Minn. and numerous nieces and nephews. Predeceased by brothers Jerome and Lyle Simonson and sister Alta McCarthy.

Memorial service will be held 1 p.m., Saturday, April 19, 2014 at Union Prairie Lutheran Church in Lanesboro, Minn., with Pastor Paul Thompson officiating.
