Anyone who crossed her doorstep or walked by her house always left with some of her chocolate chip cookies.

Besides her parents and her husband, she is predeceased by a sister, Marion H. Martin, a step-father, Griffith T. Evans and step-brother, Edward Evans.

She is survived by a niece Sharon Gade and her husband, David, who were her caregivers, of Rotterdam; step-sister, Thelma Petty of Granville, several cousins, several in-laws, nieces and nephews on Ray’s side of the family.
