Edwina "Winnie" Hall Bixby, of Terrace Park, Ohio, formerly of Oak Park, died on April 8, 2018 in San Diego, California. Born on May 2, 1942, she had worked in both New York and Chicago. Previous to her retirement in California, she had resided many years in Oak Park where she raised her family. A loyal Cubs fan, she was able to see the Cubs win the World Series. Her warmth and grace especially attracted children and animals. You could always count on a smile with her signature, "Well, hello there!" greeting. She was like a welcoming beacon in the neighborhood and will be missed by all. 

She was a member of St. Luke Episcopal Church in North Park, a volunteer at the Salvation Army Food Program for the Homeless and at the San Diego Zoo Botanical Garden. 

Winnie Hall Bixby was preceded in death by her brother, Horace Allen Bixby. She is survived by her son, Doug Mackey; her daughter, Ashley West; her brother, William Bixby; and her sister, Jane Bixby Favela.
