Nila was born on July 24, 1940, in Pfeifer, Kansas, to the late Alois and Pauline Breit. Her story is one of love, family, and the joys of being a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. For 43 years, she shared a deep and affectionate bond with her husband, Lawrence Eugene Winder, creating a life filled with cherished memories and a strong partnership.
Nila was a faithful member of St. Egbert Catholic Church. She was a devout Catholic woman who held strong to the beliefs that guided her life.
Nila had great satisfaction when working in the yard which was both fulfilling, and the result was rewarding. Whether she was gardening, landscaping, or simply spending time outdoors, it was certainly an enjoyable activity for her.
Collecting knick-knacks was a fun hobby that Nila loved. Expressing her individuality, creativity, and appreciation for the things that caught her eye and sparked her curiosity, her collection was incredible along with the joy each trinket brought her.
Though she may no longer be with them in person, Nila's legacy of love will forever be cherished by her family. In addition to her husband, she is survived by her daughters, Kimberly Rice and husband George of Newport and Amy Barmann and husband Kyle of St. Joseph, MO; sisters, Cora McCartney and husband Jerry of Garden City, KS and Judy Strecker and husband Richard of Wichita, KS; brother, Ed Breit and wife Maryann of Hays, KS; grandchildren, Phillip Recob, Whitney Smith, Collin Jackson, and Devon Jackson; and great-grandchildren, Kaiden Jackson and Waylon Smith.
