Winona was a life-long member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Sheboygan, where she was confirmed in 1939. In that same year she graduated from Immanuel Lutheran School. When her own children attended Immanuel she was active in the PTL and served numerous times as a room mother. In later years she was part of a Braille Group that printed and assembled books of the Bible in Braille.
After leaving high school, she worked at St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan, and later at Ross Glove Company. She enjoyed doing crossword and word search puzzles as well as making latch hook rug hangings. While at Meadow View she enjoyed the lively games of BINGO. She would even admit to being a fan of the Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears.
On December 30, 1949, she was united in marriage to Guillermo Flores. In 1974 Winona and Guillermo renewed their wedding vows at Immanuel. They celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary in December of 2012. Guillermo preceded her in death in 2013.
