Donor Family Quilts


Winston, Ute B.

2006

Story from the Quilt:
This square honors our mother Ute (pronounced OO-tah) Winston. Ute was German by birth. The design is the centerpiece from a German holiday tablecloth; our Bohemian heritage and family meals are an important part of our tradition. Ute was a beloved mother and friend, and taught at the University of Alabama for 23 years. A true scholar, she enjoyed music and the arts. She was a passionate advocate for peace and justice. She promoted the well-being of the community, as shown by her commitment to being an organ donor and her participation in community service such as literacy tutoring.

Her Daughters,
Susan Robinson and Carla Winston
