She enjoyed caring for others and she was all about family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Merle, and her granddaughter Ashly (Kephart) Cronin.

(John) Kephart, and Larry Bell; her grandchildren Kimberly White, Allesha Kephart, John Kephart Jr., Azia Lanier, Amanda Brennan, and R.E. Wolfe; her great grandchildren, Jonathan, Jackson, Lily, Juniper, and Leila, and her brother, Larry (Sandy) Schroeder.
