She is survived by her loving husband of almost 40 years, Doug; son, Charlie (Bridget), daughter, Nikki; and granddaughter, Morgan. She is also survived by her sister, Jeanne (Jim) McManus; brother, Paul (Debbie) Rammer; sister-in-law, Mary Borrell (Gene Knutson); brother-in-law, Greg (Bonnie) Borrell; 11 nieces (0 nephews!); best friends, Pat Egan & Rita Tichy; and of course, her Sanibel Sisters.
