She leaves behind a daughter Joanne Stroyny, three sons; Raymond Petrizzo, Gary Petrizzo and Richie Petrizzo, three step daughters; Donna Horsey, Beverlee Wilner and Karen Devivo, her brother Artie Knoeller, her sisters-in-law and best friend Barbara Scalley, and Jean Knoeller, sixteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
