How about this : 

Fetter Yoshe/Yoshke =  Uncle Josh/Joe ; Fetter = Uncle Yoshe is usually Yehoyshue (Joshua) and less often Yoysef Joseph

Mume Minde/Minna/Mindl = Aunt Minnie   Mume = Aunt . 

Sana Necha = Necha is short for Nechame female variant of Nochum . Sana is more problematic . At first , I thought it was Sara , misspelled . But I see that the "n" is very clear . Two other theories : It is a variation of the Russian name Sonye ( Sophie/Sylvie/Sarah in the US) . Or unlike Fetter and Mume (Yiddish words for Uncle and Aunt) , " Sana" is a word in another foreign language designating a familial relationship . You might try using google translate to see if anything comes up . 

In my opinion, Videchkl is  a surname . Your informant couldn't remember her first name and just used her last name to refer to the second wife , Minnie and Joe's mother .

I also note that in the notes a Yedda is mentions . I think the name is Yetta which is usually Etta in the US although my cousin Yettie was known as Josephine . 

Hope this helps .
