Wanda Anita (Sills) Winsborrow, 78, of Gales Ferry, CT passed away on Friday, January 15, 2021 at Fairview in Groton. She was the wife of the late Lloyd Winsborrow. Born in Westerly, RI on July 23, 1942, she was the daughter of the late William August and Nettie (Handy) Sills.

Wanda gave us all such courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life. No matter how sick she was, she was always determined. When anyone else would have broken, Wanda stayed strong for her family. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly looks like. Life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by Wanda understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her gently smile, her contagious laughter, and wise wisdom brought so much joy to everyone she met.

She leaves three children Debra Winsborrow- Grant & Joseph Grant, Lloyd Winsborrow and Glyn Winsborrow, her grandchildren Wanda Winsborrow-Carter & Stephen Carter, Christopher Winsborrow-Grant, and Katrina Fulwiley, Great- Grandchildren: Joseph Winsborrow, and Nicholas Winsborrow

A special thanks to the nursing staff and the administration staff at Fairview for everything.
