Winnie loved God, her family and friends. She enjoyed evening visits with her sisters, and Sunday morning rides to church with Blondie. She always enjoyed rides to the beach and watching kite surfers or to see Christmas lights. She’d never pass up a pot of steamed oysters or a plate of fried oysters. She touched many children’s lives as her kids and grandkids were growing up. Everyone has a story to tell and she had a nickname for everyone. She will always be remembered for her toughness, dislike of shoes and love for some ice cold Pepsi and a moon pie.

Winnie is survived by her three children, Marjorie Martinez and her husband Kim of Atlantic; Cindy Austin and her husband Donald of Ocracoke; Joe Goodwin and his wife Jennifer of Cedar Island; brothers, Richard Styron and his wife Joanne of Cedar Island; Bennie Styron and his wife Danielle of Cedar Island; sisters, Caldonia Gaskill of Cedar Island; Janet Lee Fulcher of Beaufort; Ellen Goodwin of Cedar Island; Blondie Goodwin of Cedar Island; sisters-in-law, Agnes Styron; Jennifer Styron both of Cedar Island; grandchildren, Noel Goodwin and her husband Daniel; Megan Martinez and her fiancé Dak; Michael “Dew” Winchester; Cameron Day; Donald Joseph “DJ” Goodwin and his wife Sarah; Kailyn Salter; Perry Austin; Jacob Salter; Jack Goodwin; Josh Goodwin; Johnny Salter; great-grandchildren, Erica Fulp; Lela Palacios; Tyler Nichols; Xander Palacios; Xavier Palacios; Embly Wormell; Everleigh Wormell; step-grandchildren, Olivia Lee and her husband Sean; Jessica Rocha and her husband Antonio; lifelong friend, Sharon Goodwin Curry of TX; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Samuel and Naomi Styron; brothers, Donald Styron; Curtis Styon; Harliss Styron; sisters, Addie Goodwin; Ester Gilgo; brothers-in-law, Carl Fulcher; Kenneth Gaskill; Troy Goodwin; and Jimmie Goodwin.
