She is survived by her daughter, Paula Persons and her children, Melissa (John) Lamar and Luke; son, Joe (Diane) and their children, Tabby (Taylor) Chase, Taylor, T.J. and Abbie Benson; son, Mark (Chrisann) and their children, Ben and Nicole; brothers, Bill (Bonnie), Paul and Tom (Gloria) Lavato; special niece, Jacquie Heinonen and family and other nieces and nephews.
