Obituary

Marjorie A. “Midge” (Anderson) Winchester, 91, of Auburn, MA and Palm City, FL, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 in the comfort of her home and in the presence of her loving family. She deeply missed the love of her life, husband, and best friend, C. Harry Winchester, with whom she has now been reunited with. They celebrated 61 years of marriage in May of 2013, just prior to his passing.

Along with Harry, Midge was predeceased by their daughter, Beth L. Winchester, in June of 2019.

Midge leaves behind her children: Clifford H. Winchester, Jr. and his wife Holly, Deborah A. Winchester and her husband Robert, Scott D. Winchester and his wife Kathi, and Susan L. Racine and her husband Marc; eleven grandchildren: Chandler, Tim, Allison, Paul, Scott, Marc, Nicole, Andrew, Lauren, Audra, and Stephen; four great-grandchildren: Tristan, Gavin, Kyla, and Maxwell; a sister, Barbara Johnson; and three nieces.

Born in Worcester and raised in Auburn, Midge was born to the late William C. and Alice G. (Murphy) Anderson. She was a graduate of Auburn High School, and received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Miami. Midge loved her time spent at her sunny Florida residence, but most especially loved spending time on the golf course. Being the petite, but powerful golfer she was, she made 4 holes-in-one; earning herself the nickname “Mighty Mouse” at her golf club in Florida. Midge also enjoyed playing bingo and slots. Above all else, she cherished her family and the many wonderful memories they shared together.

She was an inspiration to all with her strength, energy, and independence.

Her family would like to extend their appreciation and gratitude to the staff of Overlook Hospice and Laura’s Guardian Angels, for their kindness, warmth, and compassion for Midge.

Services will be held privately for her family. The BRITTON-WALLACE FUNERAL HOME, 91 Central Street, Auburn, MA is honored to be assisting with arrangements.

All of her neighbors at Piper's Landing Condo 9 are saddened by Midge's passing. She had a sharp wit and a quick "come back" that we appreciated and enjoyed.
She was an inspiration to all of us. Rebounding from lung cancer and the loss of her husband, driving from MA to FL well beyond the time anyone her age would even think of driving that distance alone, playing golf (and playing it well) every day she was able, even on days she wasn't feeling well. She was indeed "Mighty Mouse" and we will all miss her and her indomitable spirit.

I was so lucky to have played golf with Midge and share many lunches after. He resilience and love of golf and life were a true inspiration. Her golf game was amazing and she regularly beat me! She often spoke of Harry and how she missed him and now they are reunited in eternal peace. She was also so proud of her family And spoke of you all often. I will miss her sweet smile. Piper’s has truly lost a real lady. Rest in eternal peace, Midge.

I had the great pleasure of playing golf with Midge and against her, ( she beat me most of the time and I am 30 years younger) than Midge). Midge was always working to improve her game. It was not unusual to play a game with Midge, have lunch and most of us would go home for a rest , not Midge, if she didn’t score well, she would go out to the practice area and fix her problem. Midge was a True competitor, incredibly athletic and a joy to play with. The Piper’s family will really miss her, she was truly amazing! Sabrina Schneider
