Winifred Ann Gomez, aged 79 passed away on January 7, 2024, in Blackwater. Born on July 19, 1944, in Sacaton to loving parents Edison and Ina Antone, Winifred had a remarkable life filled with love and devotion.

A dedicated employee of the Gila River Indian Community, Winifred found great fulfillment in her work. She possessed a passion for cooking and took delight in preparing delicious meals for her loved ones.
