He was a faithful member of Evangelical Methodist Church. He loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and took great joy in sharing Him with others.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by two daughters, Donna W. Crouse (Jon) of Elizabeth City, NC, and Pam W.

He attended Central High School and was in the inaugural class of the Agricultural Institute at NC State University. Upon graduation, he farmed for over fifty years. Jimmie was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, and a good friend to many. He lived life with great enthusiasm and love to serve others! The family wishes to express heartfelt gratitude to Albemarle Home Care and Hospice Chaplain Scott Taylor, Heather Rouse, RN, and everyone who helped with providing care for Jimmie.

Miss Billie Anne and family, I am so saddened by this announcement. I always loved Mr. Jimmy and enjoyed talking to him. When I last saw (aka)Punkin at Coopers he reminded me how much Jesus loves me.

Dear Billie Anne and family….Sorry for your loss..Heaven has another Angel….Can hear him greeting everyone. saying”Come on in the House” No one could say that like Jimmie…Jimmie surely loves Jesus and he was truly a witness to that……I’m Thankful for the privilege of working for him for 17 years…Jimmie was a fine man and he loved his family…Love and prayers………Curtis and Rose

Condolence from Charles “Skip” Mahaffey II on July 21st, 2020 9:40 pm

To the family….Jimmie was as much an influence and positive person in my life as my own great Hero, my Dad. Mr. Jimmie always had a positive word and message for me. He allowed me to learn, experience, witness, and perfect so many experiences when I worked with him and for him. He was a Boss like no other. We all use to say, “if you went hungry working at Tanglewood, it was your own fault.” He always looked out for his people. I never imagined a world with a Tanglewood or a Jimmie Winslow, but now I am forced to accept both. I remember a conversation one late, hot day and I was working on a tractor and Mr. Jimmie came up to me and asked, very distinctly, “Hey Bud, you love it here at Tanglewood, dont you?”….I replied that “I did”….he patted me on the back and for a moment, we were on the same page. I’ll never forget it. He was a great man. I’ll miss him terribly.

Charles Mahaffey II

Condolence from Melody Jones Leonard on July 21st, 2020 9:41 pm

O my! Mr. Jimmy evokes a smile for me! He was a really strong influence on my life especially when I wasn’t living right! I will miss him. God bless ya’ll!

Oh Mrs. Billle,
I am heartbroken to learn of your losing Mr. Jimmie. Tom, and then Nancy Caroline and I, loved him so! I have such fond memories of Tom’s and his conversations that were a little about farming but a lot about their mutual brotherly love and their deep love of family!!! We were always comforted knowing Mr. Jimmie was praying for us. Please know how deeply saddened all of us in our community are who knew and loved Mr. Jimmie. He meant so much to Tom and me. You will remain In in my heart and prayers. Please give your children and grandchildren my love
Love, Coco

Condolence from Holly Audette on July 21st, 2020 11:03 pm

Billie Anne, Donna, John and Winslow family,
Michael and I are devastated to hear of this loss. Jimmie was the very reason we made EMC our church home. He gently persisted with his special invitation to attend. I looked forward to every opportunity to see him, worship and praise with him. He was a very, very special man who awaits many with the same contagious love he showed on earth. Please know how special we think your family is and how much we love you in Christ. Please allow us to assist you any way we can. Many blessings, Holly Audette

Condolence from Sarah Johnson on July 21st, 2020 11:05 pm

Condolence from Wendy Goatley on July 22nd, 2020 6:07 am

I am very sorry to read of Mr Jimmy’s passing and yet I also remember him as a strong man of faith.

Billie Ann and family, you know very well the connection we have had throughout the years, it goes beyond just words. I am fondly remembering Jimmie inviting us to the Easter Drama at Evangelical Methodist and how special it was to be a part. Needless to say the countless days at Tanglewood, I still hear stories from Ike and the kids. Jimmie meant a lot to a lot of people, take comfort in knowing, no more pain and suffering and the prayers of the saints, avail much.

Condolence from Sarah VanDeWalker Boyle on July 22nd, 2020 11:28 am

Winslow family,
I’m so sad to hear of Mr. Jimmie’s passing. My sincerest condolences go out to you and my prayers go up for you as you navigate this loss. I look forward to seeing his smile again as he someday welcomes me into the kingdom of God just like he used to welcome us all at EMC. I have no doubt that he is up there now welcoming everyone in and praising his Savior joyfully!

Condolence from Fred and Jan Riley on July 22nd, 2020 11:36 am

Billie Anne and family,
Please know that I am grieving with you. The Bible says that you will know a man by the fruits that he bares.
The fruits of the Holy Spirit were so evident in Jimmie. He must have said, “God Bless you Miss Fran” a million
times , and he really meant it.
I love you all and consider you family.,
Fran Madrey Haskett

Condolence from Bernie and Jeanie Blystone on July 23rd, 2020 7:33 am

Billie Anne and family, we always enjoyed our times with Jimmy whether at Albemarle School our at church. Always with a smile and a handshake . You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Condolence from Cathy B Wilson on July 23rd, 2020 8:51 am

I know at least 1 fishing-shirt-wearing Jesus lover welcoming Jimmy into Heaven this glorious day. I am sure Tarheel-lover Berle is right at the front of the line hugging on him and joking with him about his beloved Wolfpack! Jimmy wearing his fishing shirts to church made such an impression on Berle that my Berle had to have a fishing shirt to wear to church too. Berle always shopped in thrift stores and, after many visits, found and bought many fishing shirts – one in almost every color in the world, I think! Berle admired Jimmy greatly, we both did. Much of Berle’s admiration for Jimmy came from all of Jimmy’s good Christ-like qualities…but I want you to know that, to Berle, Jimmy was also a trend-setter at church! If Jimmy could wear fishing shirts to church, then so could Berle! And he did! My love to each of you. I know you are sad and will miss him greatly. Jimmy is celebrating in Heaven with Jesus…and Berle!

Condolence from Peggy Corbell Langley on July 23rd, 2020 10:18 am

Billie Ann,
My sincere condolences to you and your family.

Rest In Peace Jimmy.

Love, Joyce

Condolence from Dona Whitehead Yunker on July 24th, 2020 9:05 am

Billie Anne & family, My condolences to you during this sad time of dealing with the passing of Jimmy. May the memories he shared help you through your lifetime and live on in your hearts. He will be greatly missed by all those whose lives he touched while here on earth.

Condolence from Ray Methvin on July 25th, 2020 7:11 pm

Billie Anne and Family,

I was saddened to learn of Jimmie’s passing. Jimmie lived a life of faith and purpose through Jesus Christ and he is spending eternity in His presence. I have fond memories of so long ago visiting the EM Church and the time spent on the river with Cousin Henry, Jimmie, Don and Aldon, and Cousin Evie.

I am grateful to Jimmie for taking the time to call my dad from time to time just to talk and keep him connected to Elizabeth City. It meant a lot.

May God wrap his loving arms around you during this time of grief. Jimmie has been reunited with all those loved ones that have gone before and is in the radiant presence Jesus Christ our Savior. Jimmie ran the race; he kept the Faith and now he is Home.

Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

Condolence from Mike Barkley on July 26th, 2020 2:21 pm

We are so sorry for your loss. Mr Jimmie was surly a man of God so I know he has heard those words “welcome good & faithful servant “! May the Lord’s peace be with the family.

Condolence from Delna & Betty Dail on July 27th, 2020 2:44 pm

Billie Ann, the first time I met you and Jimmie I knew you all were special people. I still remember how much he enjoyed “Victory in Jesus” and Jimmie would say “Oh Taste and see that the Lord is good”. He loved his Lord and Savior. I know he is having a large time with Jesus. We all are going to miss him greatly, but we know that he is at peace and wouldn’t come back if he could. We love you and your family so much and we will keep you in our prayers. It won’t be long before we will be with him and praising the Lord.

Condolence from David & Tracy Gregory on July 28th, 2020 8:01 pm
