Jobyna C. Winslow, 88

CASCO — Jobyna Chapman Winslow, 88, of Mayberry Hill Road, slipped away at Country Village Assisted Living in Casco on Tuesday, April 28, 2015, after a long battle with Parkinson's disease.

She was born July 6, 1926, in Lynn, Mass., daughter of Job and Ethel Cox Chapman. After graduating from Lynn English High School Jo joined her father and grandfather working at General Electric. She later moved to Belmont, N.H., where her parents owned a soda shop and gas station.

In 1946 Jo met and married Bill Winslow of Chatham, N.H., where they started their life together. In 1951 they moved to the Winslow family farm in Casco, where she was active in the community as a Brownie/Girl Scout leader. Jobyna worked at Dielectric in Raymond for 28 years as a payroll clerk. She is fondly remembered by many of her coworkers. She will be sadly missed by family, friends and neighbors who knew her for her love of gardening, painting, her pets, and her little red sports car. Jobyna was an accomplished pianist. One of her favorite memories was playing piano with her granddaughter at a high school talent show. Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Jobyna is predeceased by her parents and her husband Bill. Surviving are a son, Bruce Winslow and wife Marilyn of Florida; a daughter, Linda (Lynn) Ribas and husband Ed of Otisfield; grandchildren, Jennifer Bosworth and husband Todd, Rodney Ribas and wife Becky and their friend Scott Gsell, Lisa Woodson and husband Brian, Anthony Winslow and wife Heather; nine great-grandchildren, Siara, Elysha, Theodore, Daria, Benjamin, Collette, Charlotte, Cooper and Brady; and her nephew Keith of Otisfield.
