George Winn, Moderator And Elder

February 11, 1938 — February 23, 2022

Taylor, Texas

He liveth long who liveth well  All other life is short and vain

He liveth longest who can tell  Of living most for heavenly gain

Work while it is day for when  Night cometh no man can work…

On February 11, 1938, in the small community of Taylor, Texas, our Lord in Heaven blessed the world with the birth of Moderator George Robert Winn, a longtime resident of Williamson County and on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, the community began to mourn the passing of a strong and upright citizen, one that was an icon for his family, his community, his church, the city, the county, and the state of Texas. His given name is George Robert Winn.

At the age of eighty-four, Elder Winn heard the voice of Jesus and left his earthly tabernacle, to join those loved who preceded him death. Remembering his parents and his sister, Joyce Harris.  Elder Winn led a rewarding and active life as he desired for this legacy, he established is priceless.
