Lucy L Winton

Piggott, AR, 1935 - 2021

Lucy L. Gramling Winton was born in Paragould, Ark., on July 27, 1935, and passed away on October 22, 2021, at the age of 86 years at Piggott Community Hospital. Lucy was the daughter of Carlos Gramling and Ruth Gramling Warren, and a sister to Clarice Faucett and two infant brothers who all preceded her in death.
Lucy and James ‘Jim' Winton were united in holy matrimony on July 16, 1951 and were married 58 years. Jim and Lucy were life-long members of First Baptist Church and raised their children in the church where life-long friendships were formed and continue to date. Jim preceded her in death on June 5, 2009. Also preceding her in death was her grandson, Christopher Michael Winton (1980) and great-grandson, David Alan Brown (2019).
Lucy enjoyed numerous hobbies which included traveling, sewing, crocheting, quilting, and Diamond Dot Art. Lucy was blessed with many friends who took the time to chauffeur her back and forth to doctor appointments, checked in on her after appointments or hospital stays, or just took the time to converse with her during the evening hours.
Brown Shoe Company was where Lucy spent her early working years. She then became a full-time homemaker, honing her canning and sewing skills. Later, she and Jim became co-owners at Clay County Abstract and Insurance with Charles and Alice Gregory. In 1980, Jim and Lucy split their abstract and title insurance operation and opened Clay County Abstract, Inc. She and Jim spent over 40 years working side by side until 2000 when Jim retired and Lucy would work alongside her son, Van, in the business. In all, she spent over 50 years as an abstractor and title insurance agent.
