She was known as “Grammy” to her two grandsons, Nathan (Loren) and Anthony (Sarah); one granddaughter, Michelle (Jaime) and seven great-grandchildren. She is also survived by many other dear family members, friends and neighbors.

The family would like to thank the staff at Warwick Forest Assisted Living for their care.
