Her loving husband of sixty-seven years, Earl Thomas Howsley, Jr., deceased April 7, 2018 and one grandson predecease her; Alex Mario Vial deceased March 20, 1991.

Mom worked for Nevada Bell, Weinstocks and had most of her career with the Washoe County School District as a Library Assistant. Mom loved to spend time at her grandchildren's sporting events, vacationing at Lake Almanor, going for walks, shopping with family and taking golf trips with her husband and friends.

Mom is an Anatomical Donor for the University of Nevada, School of Medicine in Reno, NV.
