Winona duCille - - Church Council Member
I am Winona Jones duCille, a native of Jamaica West Indies. I grew up in Jamaica but lived in a number of foreign countries for some time. I now reside in North Miami Beach, Florida. I attended parochial and private schools in my early education, then continued college and graduate work successfully. Professionally, I practiced in health care and church work and am now retired.
My parents helped me to make Sunday school and church a part of my earliest years and I have chosen to make the church central to my lifestyle. I now attend Bethlehem Lutheran Church and am very satisfied with this fellowship as a place of worship and service to God.
Overall, I am strongly family centered. I have five brothers, two sisters and many nephews and nieces. I also have five stepsons, two stepdaughters and many grandchildren. There is hardly a year, for some time now, that I do no attend a wedding, baptism or some special celebration in the family. Most of my family attends church regularly and I encourage the youth and young adult family members to take their faith seriously and to find a church home for fellowship among Christians.
I have multiple social interests such as the arts, business, politics, etc. I also have a few hobbies such as taking long walks, watching golf and tennis, but I mostly enjoy reading a good book, the Scriptures, spending time in prayer, listening to all kinds of music with friends or just in quiet solitude. Life is good, God is great and I am having a ball living in the 21st century with or without a cell phone.
