She was preceded in death by her husband Sam, and her brothers and sister. Surviving are her children Mary Wiseman, Margaret Czarnopis, Judy Besemer, and Tim Slivick. Also surviving are fourteen grandchildren, twenty-nine great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. She was also great-grandmother to all the children at Pine Ridge Apartments.
