Winnie Johnson, the mother of Keith Bennett, died this morning at 12.35 am, aged 78. She was a much loved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, and is survived by one younger brother. Winnie fought tirelessly for decades to find Keith and give him a Christian burial. Although this was not possible during her lifetime, we, her family, intend to continue this fight now for her and for Keith. We hope that the authorities and the public will support us in this.

We would like to express our deep gratitude to all the medical staff who cared for Winnie during her illness, and also the public for their good wishes and support over the years.

We hope that everyone will understand, however, that we would like to grieve for her in private, both at this time and during her funeral.

Oh Ab... What can I say? I am so sorry to hear about Winnie. What a strong and courageous lady right until the end. She never gave up hope. A true inspiration to us all.

My heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family at this truly difficult time and I hope that the fact that she is reunited with Keith is of some comfort.

Of course we will never give up searching for Keith....Winnie would be proud of that.

Sending all the love in the world x

I am so sorry to hear this Sad I met winnie a few times when she came to visit friends of ours on the south coast where I live. As a born and bred mancunian myself she was happy to hear my accent and knew that I would understand the colourful phrases she came out with from time to time. I found her to be a warm, funny lovely person who was very down to earth and told it like it was, and she never lost sight of her goal to find keith. She'll be sitting with him now and will be at peace.

But its even more reason to continue the search for keiths body and give him the burial he deserves. Bless them both and my thoughts go out to all the family and friends left behind xx

Oh gosh this is so sad. Ab my thoughts are with you and the rest of your family at this time. Winnie and Keith are reunited at long last and her suffering - both mental and physical - has ended. I hope you can take some small comfort from that. Rest well Mrs Johnson. Xxx

I'm so sorry AB. I hope she can finally be at peace and I am sure she would have known you would never give up looking for Keith. My condolences to you and your family on the passing of such an amazing woman.
