She is survived by a sister-in-law, Mrs. Sue (Frank) Dickison and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and a dear friend, Phyllis Knipp, who was like a daughter to her.

Special thanks to her nieces, Judy Arthur and Sharon Davis who oversaw her care and nephews, Chad and John Sloan and the late Jim Sloan who were faithful in their frequent visits.
