She leaves behind her seven grandchildren, of which she was present at each of their births, William, Ann, Benjamin, Timothy, Martin, Andrew and Mary Margaret.

Also surviving are her sister, Mary Terese Russin and her husband, Robert, and many other sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and many dear friends.
