Winifred “Winnie” Dumey, 83, of Jackson, passed away Tuesday, April 5, 2016 at Saint

Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau.

She was born June 18, 1932, near Millersville, daughter of Boyd and Bertha Sander Summers, Jr.  She and Ralph L. Dumey were married July 3, 1953 at First United Methodist Church in Chaffee, Missouri.  They had been married nearly 59 years when Ralph passed away April 1, 2012.

Winnie was a 1950 graduate of Chaffee High School.  She and Ralph moved from Scott City to Jackson in 1962 and joined the New McKendree United Methodist Church in Jackson, where she was very active in the church, United Methodist Women, and the Mary and Martha Circle for many years.  Winnie was a long-time employee in the cashier’s office at Southeast Hospital. She was a very caring and giving grandmother and great-grandmother.  She took great delight in homemaking and preparing meals for her entire family as often as possible.  She loyally followed the Cardinals but her greatest joy was being with her family, especially grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by an infant brother and an infant sister.
