Wynona was born July 3, 1948, in Olney to Norven J. Weidner and Lucille Jones Weidner. She married Julian Rozell Royse and they welcomed 4 children: LaDana Abernathy (significant other Joe Reid), Debbie Royse, Donald Royse and Duane Royse. Julian preceded her in death on November 15, 1976. Wynona later married Bert E. Alvord, and they added one daughter, Belinda Alvord, to the family. Bert preceded her in death on February 18, 2019.
Wynona's joy in life was being a wife, mother, grandmother, and sister. She is survived by her 5 children, one grandson, Caleb, two sisters, one brother, several sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law and their spouses as well as many nieces and nephews.
Wynona was a caregiver to many in the community, whether young, or old. She was a "grandma" to 4 special boys Isaiah, Payton, Malachi and Declan, who loved her dearly. Through the years, her favorite activities she enjoyed were baking, gardening, and playing bingo.
Visitation will be from 5-7 PM on Wednesday, October 19, 2022 in the chapel of Thrasher Family Funeral Home. Private family services will be held at a later date.
