She will be lovingly remembered by her 3 children, Judy Rogers (Grant Close), Debbie Topolnisky (Ewen), Barry Graham (Adrienne), 2 stepsons Murray White (Joan) and Allen White (Donna) as well as grandchildren, great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She is also survived by 2 siblings, June Blennerhassett and George Nelson.
