Rev Winona Mae Pike was born in rural Urbana, Missouri on June 05, 1936. She passed away at North Kansas City Hospital on December 30, 2018. Winona graduated from Park Hill High School in 1955. In the fall of 1956 she attended Kansas City Bible College for one year.
 
After returning to Kansas City, she worked at Menorah Medical Center as a Certified Nurses Aid. Winona met and married William Albert Pike in April 1959. She and Bill came into Pentecost in February 1973 at Souls Harbor Assembly of God church in Independence, MO under Rev Quattlebaum. In 1976 they started attending Gospel Lighthouse church in Kansas City. In November 1977 Rev. Bill Jennings asked them to take the children’s church. It was in that time frame they created and became known in ministry as Uncle Fatty and Aunt Donut.  Winona and Bill were both licensed in 1980 as Pentecostal Church of God ministers. Winona worked a total of 7 districts of the PCG Junior Camps plus Junior Rallies. She and Paul attended Rose of Sharon Church in 2016.
 
When the Outreach ministry began serving breakfast to the men from City Union Mission in 2017, she saw opportunity and began teaching at the breakfast. She had interest in nutrition and natural remedies for healing. Being creative and talented, she crocheted many beautiful items. Other favorites were hats and cats. She was an avid reader, especially the Bible and could recite what book, and usually what chapter, any scripture was in when you asked her. She spoke often of her love for her four sons, Bruce, Paul, Gary and Dana.  Winona is also survived by grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Fittingly, her favorite song was “The Blood”. With a teaching ministry span of 69 years, she knew that Without the shed of Jesus, that there is no remission of sins.
