Mary Jane Winchester
Mary Jane Winchester of Overland Park, KS passed away on February 23, 2022. She was born October 27, 1934, in Bridgeport Connecticut, daughter of the late Robert L Horton, Sr., and Catherine (Kennedy) Horton of Stratford, Connecticut. She was a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania dental hygiene program. Although she worked for several years as a dental hygienist, her real joy was her family and being a mother.

To her friends, she will be remembered for her kindness and strength of spirit.
She is survived by her two daughters; Eve Winchester of Lenexa, Kansas, Carole (Winchester) Truckenbrodt, and her husband Michael of Greer, South Carolina. Also her grandchildren Sarah and husband Carl Sarkissian, David and Amy Truckenbrodt, Allison Truckenbrodt, and her fiance David Avard.
