She is survived by her daughters, Nolette King of Missouri and Noelle Jones of Arizona and her 2 granddaughters, 3 grandsons, 1 great grandson.

A wonderful lady and friend. Her and Nolan were peas in a pod and will be missed by the many friends they have made through the years. They will both be together with Jesus in Paradise.
