Winters, a mother of four, was honored by her children at the memorial.
Her son Phoenix Geimer requested in a Facebook post that in lieu of flowers, well-wishers make a donation to the Girl Scouts of America, the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood or the American Red Cross.
Her daughter Montana Geimer sang a hymn at the service in honor of her mother.
Steve Gunn, the former editor of the Capital Gazette, described her as the best hire ever made by a newspaper who brought humanity to the publication every day.
Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley says she was seen so frequently around town, he thought the Capital Gazette had cloned her, because he couldn’t understand how one person could be in so many places.
Representatives of the Girls Scouts and Red Cross spoke of contributions Winters made to help people.
