Born July 20, 1918, in Carroll County, she was the daughter of the late Roscoe and Fannie Quinn Garver. Her husband of 40 years, Walter Pickett Wantz, predeceased her in 1979.

Buckey Garver of New Windsor; three nephews, Paul Garver of Taneytown, Richard Garver of Westminster, Robert Garver of Canby, OR; and three nieces, Melissa Goodwin of Hanover, PA, Sarah Jane Silverman of Westminster, and Elaine Molar of Hampstead.
