She’ll be sadly missed by her three grandchildren; Amy (Clay) Vandervort, Rhonda (David) Flanigan, and Lori (Nick) McDade. Five great-grandchildren; Allan, Andrea, Johnathan, Christian and Dillon also survive.
Sisters Rena Haney, Louise (Victor) Fantin, Virginia Fowler, and Vonita (Bernard) Sampsel, as well as brothers Wiley Patrick, Wishard (Louise) Patrick and James Dale Patrick, complete the family.
