Frances F. Winkler

Frances F. Winkler, 104, went home to the Lord on
Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at St. Mary’s Hospital in
Amsterdam. Mrs. Winkler was lovingly cared for at
her home by her son David and several gracious helpers
for the last eleven years as she suffered the effects
of dementia.
She was born on July 25, 1917 in Johnstown and lived
in Fulton and Montgomery counties all her life. She
was the daughter of the late Frank and Amy (Voorhees)
Fonda and attended Johnstown schools.
She married Alquin Winkler on August 12, 1950, and
they enjoyed 57 years together prior to his death on
January 3, 2008.
Frances worked in the glove mills and later for
Fonda-Fultonville Schools as support staff. She was
a long-standing member of the Fonda Reformed
Church. She served as a Sunday school teacher. She
also led Bible studies with the Christian Women’s organization.
She was a great mother, wonderful grandmother,
and good cook. All loved her chocolate jumble cookies
that she mastered from her mother-in-law’s recipe.
She loved to bake more than clean the house.
Frances is survived by her son, David, and daughter,
Marcia (Lane) Sattler; six grandchildren – Amy (Brendan),
Aaron (Rebekah), Benjamin (Jessica), Kaitlin
(Andrew), Abigail (Christopher), and Anna; ten great
grandchildren – Elizabeth, Easton, Claire, Emmeline,

and her brother-in-law Enders Ingersoll.
