Sister Pearline T. Winn was born to the union of Sam and Lucille Travet of Kite on May 17, 1938. She had an undeniable and unconditional love for her family and loved ones. Winn was a devoted mother and daughter. Her family was a major focus in her life and spending time with relatives brought her comfort and joy, especially her grandchildren. Winn was educated in the Johnson County School System. She later moved to Jacksonville, Florida, where she met and married the late Sevian Winn. They shared many joys and challenges. She would later move back to Swainsboro and it was then that she accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior under the pastorship of the late Bishop Mary McKinnon. Her love for God was impeccable through her worship and devotion to Him. Winn took pleaser in worshipping God anywhere she was invited. Her later years were spend attending the Faith Miracle Revival Church in Vidalia, under the leadership of Pastor James Middleton, whom she truly loved. Winn was formerly employed by the Emanuel County School System. She was employed there until her retirement. In addition to her spouse, Sevian, Winn was preceded in death by one son, John “Edward” Travet in 2010 and her oldest daughter, Elaine Travet Brown in 2015.
