She won Queen for a Day in 1962. She was always doing for others, knitting prayer shawls, caps, and dishcloths. She sewed 70+ teddy bears as gifts. Through her church, she donated soda can tabs, used postage stamps, and over $1500, one “F” (Faith) dollar at a time, which provided water wells for people in Africa.

Predeceased by her parents, her brothers, Ray and Gary Heath, and Herbert Wingfield Sr. She is survived by her partner, Paul Hyland, children Diana Sherry, Sandra Wingfield, Suzanne (Gregory) Laskowski, and Herbert Wingfield Jr. (Tammy), and many loving grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
