She is survived by two nephews, Richard William Sline (Layton, UT) and Paul Christopher Sline (Appleton, WI), the sons of her older brother, the late William F. Sline, Jr. and several great and great-great nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, her older brother William (Omaha, NE), her older sister, Marjorie A.
