    We have lost Nicole Winn

    Friends, it is with a terribly heavy heart that I share with you that Nicole Winn, wife of Wup Winn, Mother of Gavin and Kyler Winn, and only child of Bill and Dianna Duncan, passed away today from injuries sustained in a horse riding accident.

    All of this family greatly needs our prayers of support.

    I met Bushwheel Bill at JC and instantly liked him. My prayers for strength are with him and his family.

    I can't even begin to process this.. such a genuine article lady, daughter, wife, and mom. Wup, your family will look to you for strength and you will be their pillar. You are an amazing man, if anyone can shepherd a family through this it is you. We love you Wup.

    My deepest sympathy to Wup, Bill, Dianne and the kids. I had the opportunity to get to visit with Nicole at JC a few times over the years, and she would dish it out on me in true Duncan style. Wup, be strong for the kids, ask for guidance constantly. God Bless you and your family.

    Oh, that's terrible. Horses can be such a joy to work with, but things can sure go bad in an instant. I'm so sorry - - - -

    When we heard about this yesterday, the tears flowed. Our hearts were very heavy for Wup, the boys, and, of course, Diana and Bill who were on their way to Oshkosh where we were looking forward to seeing them. We have visited all of the family in Joseph and loved and admired all of them. We know all of you are strong people, but this just seems unfair and, of course, tragic. Our love and thoughts go out to all of you.

    Bill Duncan talks of our Super Cub family and this is so true. I reflected on how Nicole effected our lives all day yesterday. Having met Nicole at the second Red River Redneck Fly-In and the way she interacted with Lee, visiting with her on the phone every time I called Alaskan Bushwheels, adopting two of her Bushwheel puppies makes you related for sure. From the first time we saw Pokie at Johnson Creek in 2009, the puppy update phone calls and the call I had to make to her when we lost him tragically. She sent me this card and it sums up everything. My heart is heavy and I pray for Wup, Kyler, Gaven, Bill and Dianna. Our lives have been touched and no matter what, we will always have those fond memories.

    Steve,
    It is funny that the Bushwheel pups or Nicole's pups are huggers. When they were born they always wanted to nuzzle and our Piper sticks her head in the crook of your arm and hides her head for a hug. I found that your Dozer did the same thing. When calling ABW I mentioned it to Nicole and she told me that when they were real young the pups were carried with their heads tucked in to the crook of her arm. It is the way she taught the boys to carry them. When the dogs need love that is where they come.....
    For Nicole hugs.
    Let her legacy carry on.

    Not really sure what to say, everyone has expressed my thoughts and emotions way better than I could ever do. I can only say with heavy heart , that I feel pain not to the degree you all are feeling. You are in our thoughts

    Got this from Donna Claus yesterday. It will appear in the local paper next week.




    Nicole Renee Winn: Hiyum Hieweksha, was born on August 19, 1976 in Bedford, Indiana, the beloved daughter and only child of William D. and Dianna S. Duncan. They left Indiana when she was four looking for “someplace with one road in and one road out” and ended up in Joseph. She learned her love of horses alongside her parents as they cowboyed through out the county, particularly the 3V Ranch and Doug Bar Ranch in Snake River Canyon. She attended Judy Kinsley kindergarten, Joseph Elementary and Joseph High School, graduating in 1994 all the while honing her horse handling skills. She saved her babysitting money and bought her own horse “Wes” in 1992. Wes went to college with her and worked the Sale Barn in Hermiston as a job.


    She met her devoted husband “Wup” Winn at the Pendleton Roundup in 1995. After she graduated from Blue Mountain College with a degree in Business AG they married in 1998 and lived in Pendleton where Wup worked for the Dodge Dealership and Less Schwabb while Nicole worked for the Casino and Community Bank. In 2000 they moved to Joseph where they worked for Alaskan Bush Wheels until 2013, raising their two sons Kyler (14) and Gaven (12) and about 40 puppies in the office. Nicole sold her beautiful mini Australian’s to families all over the United States who have wonderful pets from her exceptional dogs.


    Nicole and her husband Wup, who shared her love of flying, are both accomplished pilots. They are both known throughout the world of aviation for their knowledge of all things “bush flying” due to their work with Alaska Bushwheels. She was a master of the maze of the FAA regulation, a real claim to fame.


    Nicole went on to earn her Real Estate license working with Timberline Realty under the tutelage of Claresse O’Connor where she was building up a clientele and succeeding so well in her new endeavor. Wup and Nicole have recently bought the Video Buff with the expectation of making it thrive as a family run operation, a great learning experience for Kyler and Gaven.


    Her family in Pendleton have taught her their traditions over the years and included her in their hearts. She loved the traditional ways and chose to walk with them. She received her Indian name Hiyum Hiewcksha which means “Bear Dreamer” that she treasured in her heart and soul.


    Her sister Janine said of Nicole. “From the beginning, she was totally part of us. She jumped right in and fully embraced our tradition and never hesitated. It was important to her that her boys know their ancestor’s ways.”


    Nicole was an accomplished seamstress and bead worker and she came to the family with questions, always wanting what she made to be right. She gave willingly from her heart and many were gifted with her skilled creations.


    “As a traditional woman, she put life into what she the created”


    She left this life on July 16, 2015 while doing what she loved to do best, riding one of her family horses.


    She is survived by her husband Wup, their two sons Kyer and Gavin, Her parents Bill and Dianne Duncan and Beverly Winn, and Wup’s family that she clamed as hers. Sisters Janine, Lynsie and Jen. Brothers Lance, Jeff, Tannon and Brother John, her nieces and nephews whom she claimed as her “children from another mother” Ashley, Isaac, Rebecca Nicole, and Gracin. Numerous other nieces, nephews, aunties and uncles and so many more in the Pendleton Region.


    She was given the honor of their traditional burial and was laid to rest near to her brother Steve Winn in Pendleton on Monday, July 20.


    Nicole loved her husband and sons immensely and was so proud of them, keeping them as the center of her universe. Her family and many friends whom she touched world wide, will miss her desperately.


    A celebration of life will be held August 2, 2015 in the Thunder Room on the Chief Joseph Fair Grounds in Joseph, OR at 1:00 pm.


    In honor of our traditions we will have a memorial service in one year, which will free us to once again speak her precious name.
