She leaves behind to miss her: husband James Irvin, brothers Henry Laughlin (Meg), Glenn Laughlin, Guy Laughlin; a sister Viola Lewis; in-laws Becky Escude, Pat Jermyn, Gerald & Danny Irvin and very special friends George & Becky Hale.
She joins in Heaven her parents, Hugh and Lula Mae Laughlin and in-laws Margaret Irvin, Freda Irvin and W.C. Irvin.
