From the Desk of Fr. Warwick
Memories of Our First 60 Years
Joan and Jim Winkler moved into their Los Altos home in 1963 and attended St.
Joseph Church, Mountain View, where Jim cantered and sang at Mass. Following the
birth of their first-born Paul, and with Jim no longer involved in their music ministry,
they both felt they should transfer to St. Simon Parish, as they lived within its
boundaries. Many of their neighbors were parishioners and encouraged them to get
involved, which they did.
Jim was a professionally trained singer and on special occasions would sing at Mass at
St. Simon, and when asked, at weddings and funerals. Fr. Lloyd Glass enjoyed Jim’s
company and often invited him to share his knowledge on “public speaking” with his
fellow priests. They were pleased to hear his talks as it helped them with their homilies.
It was not long before the Winklers were immersed into activities in the parish. For a
short time Jim helped with the training of Altar Servers and was a Lector and
Eucharistic Minister at Mass and at El Camino Hospital.
Joan kept busy as a young mother of Paul (64), Mark (67) and Greg (69), but still found
time to occasionally help with school and parish events. Joan recalls, “We were part of
the Marriage Encounter team and would host 3-4 couples at a time, discussing various
topics. We talked about what to expect in married life, how to deal with finances,
children, conflicts and communication; all very important to the newlyweds.” At that
time, Jim worked for the Ford Motor Company and would travel a lot, but when able, he
loved to help with the Men's Club and the picnics! “The boys remember fondly the
picnics at St. Joseph's Seminary and BBQ’s at St. Simon with ‘Garbage Can Chicken,’
a favorite with everybody! Tom Carroll and Gary Ariente were wonderful cooks,” Joan
remembers. “The community has always been a wonderful support to me, especially
when I lost two babies at eight months pregnant. Later, when Greg was born, it was
touch and go for a while as to whether he would make it. The I.H.M. Sisters were
marvelous and his first outing was to the Convent chapel where the nuns placed him
on the Altar. On Greg's first birthday we all celebrated together in the Convent with a
big chocolate cake.” The Winklers often invited the Sisters over for a picnic along with
Betty and Bob Wrasman and Judy and Wally Van Dyck. Another regular visitor to their
home was Fr. Glass. He would sit in his favorite chair, while the boys would enjoy his
company by climbing all over him and playing games!
Paul, Mark, and Greg all graduated from St. Simon School and then from St. Francis
High School. They loved being part of the many sports teams at St. Simon and having
Joe Schram and Virgil Deppmeier as coaches. Many nights they would have to search
the neighborhood for a practice court. “It was always fun riding in Mr. Schram’s huge
green car; you could fit the whole team in it!” recalls Paul. Paul participated in
basketball, baseball and track. In the 1977-78 season, he was named Most
Outstanding Track Man for a second straight year and also named St. Simon Athlete of
the Year. Two years later, Mark was awarded the M.V.P. at the Track meet, for two
consecutive years, following in his brother's footsteps.
The boys all have fun memories of their years at St. Simon which include: Sr. Marie
Eymard, the 8th grade teacher shooting baskets with the kids at recess; Fr. James
Walsh with his foot in a cast playing basketball with the boys; and Greg who dressed
up and played Santa for the 8th grade Christmas Party. They remember how Fr.
James Spooncer and Fr. Glass would visit each classroom to hand out the school
report cards to everyone! Another favorite memory of the boys (who were all Altar
servers), was volunteering to serve at the daily 8.30am Mass - this meant missing the
first period of the day! Joan recalls, “When Mark was in eighth grade, they would pair
the students with a first grade partner and process into Church. Nothing looked funnier
than Mark who stood 6’ 5” tall holding hands with his first grader who was the shortest
boy at 3’ tall, everyone laughed!” They also remember having to climb upon the
canopy, which hung over the Altar in the old church and drape materials over it to
decorate for the yearly Christmas Play. Paul still recalls playing Jesus one year!
Sadly, Jim passed away in 1996 following 10 years of being sick. Joan recalls the
tremendous outreach from parishioners who offered to sit with him during this time, provided
meals and spiritual support and prayers. “We had many friends and belonged to many
ministries, and the support of the community was very comforting.” Joan continued to be a
Lector and Eucharistic Minister and began attending bible study classes run by Sr. Pat
Mitchell in the Rectory. Bob Thompson then became coordinator and later Joan lead them
herself. She enjoyed this “small faith sharing” group which became a “family unit” for many
who attended faithfully each week. Joan graduated from the Institute for Lay Ministry in
2001, a 3-year course run through the Diocese of San Jose. For many years, she helped
coordinate the Funeral Reception Ministry and also spent time as a Sponsor in the R.C.I.A.
process for Leanne, Paul's wife. In her spare time, Joan enjoys oil painting, having donated
many of her works to the Auction. “This is a great parish and was a very important part of
our family's life, and continues to be for me today. I have been blessed with some wonderful
friendships over the years.”
Thank you, Joan, for sharing your memories, time, and talent with our parish.
