She is also survived by her granddaughters, Kristine and Tracey and their mother Cynthia Forbush and by her 8 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She is also survived by a very special friend, George Howe that with his support and love she was able to be in her home and have her gardens that brought her much joy.
