Message: I am truly saddened by the news of Mrs. Wynne's death. Dr. Wynn was always our family doctor, and Mrs Wynne was truly one of those people who were the icons of Warren for many many years. He enery, her strength, and most of all her energizing spirit made everything around her more lively and enjoyable. As I look back over the years of growing up and living in Warren, several memorable personalities come to mind, and Matilda Wynne is near the top of that list. Thank you Mrs. Wynne for enhancing our community, our lives, our schools, and our town through your presence. The standard has been set for a meaningful life, and we were well served by your presence. Go in Peace, and May the Lord be With You and your family during this time. We are saddened by your passing, but we will celebrate your life and your contributions.
