She is survived by her daughter, Jane (Scott) Berg; son, Jon (longtime friend, Elizabeth); son-in-law, Dick Groven: nine grandchildren: Jennifer (Jeff) Chan, Sara Atkinson, Jeffrey (Angie) Groven, Molly (Scott) Bergman, Tyler, Tommy (Cady), Danny, Cole (Savannah), and Haley (Billy); 17 great-grandchildren, Trevor, Carter, Nick, Alex, Jordon, Andrew, Austin, Aden, Gwen, Elise, Kai, Harper, Walker (due in June), Archer, Brynley, Calista and Harlow; five great-great-grandchildren: Elijah, Bently, Paisley, Leo, and Aries and nieces and nephews.

Thank you to everyone who helped fill her long days with visits, phone calls, prayers and help in the home.
Special thanks to Jane, Scott, and Jon who went beyond their call of duty. God Bless you all until we meet again.
