She was preceded in death by her parents, husband of 50 years, her son Collin and stepdaughter Pat.
Her survivors include her daughters Joy and husband John, Gail and husband Matt, Sue and son James, grandchildren, John, Sonya, Myranda, Michelle, Sheila and spouses, John D., Leanne and Gina along with 18 great grandchildren and numerous wonderful nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.
