Elizabeth Ann Roney Winne

Elizabeth “Betty”Ann Roney Winne — who loved exotic birds and flew to Paris to shop for clothes — died of multiple debilitating illnesses on Tuesday, Nov. 9, 2021, in Pasadena, Florida near her beloved daughter, Debora. She was 75.

Born in Slingerlands on Sept. 17, 1947, she graduated from Bethlehem Central High School in 1964. She worked at Blue Cross/Blue Shield in Slingerlands until she married Peter Winne, an airline mechanic working for Pan American and Delta airlines.

The couple moved many times during their marriage, keeping a home at Helderberg Lake for many years.

“While living in Georgia, Betty Ann was a devoted enthusiast of exotic birds,” her family wrote in a tribute. “She started her own business, Betty Ann’s Birdhouse, till their move to Florida.

“She enjoyed her family and her flights to Paris to do her clothes shopping. When they moved to Florida, she joined the ladies in the Red Hat society and continued to make many more friends, before her illness struck.”


Elizabeth Ann Roney Winne is survived by her husband, Peter Harold Everet Winne, of Hudson, Florida; by her son, Patrick Winne, of Hudson, Florida; and by her daughter, Debora Burgmaier, and her husband, Michael, of Pasadena, Florida.

She is also survived by her brothers, William Roney and his wife, Laura, of Waterford, Wisconsin, and James Shaw and his wife, Julie, of Slingerlands; by her sister, Patricia Adams, and her husband, Richard, of Altamont; by her sister-in-law, Patricia Scoons, and her husband, Gerald, of Westerlo; by many special nieces and nephews; and by her dearest friend, Sandra (née Moak) Rarick of Slingerlands.

Her mother, Marion (née Gallup) Roney Shaw, and her stepfather, Joseph Shaw, died before her, as did her brother, Joseph Shaw.

Cremation arrangements were handled by Life Tribute Funeral Care in Gulfport, Florida.
