She was preceded in death by her parents.

A requiem Mass will be at 3 p.m. Sunday at Saint Andrew Episcopal Church, 602 W. Superior St., with the Rev. Richard Lightsey celebrating. Internment will follow in Saint Andrew columbarium. Friends may visit with the family from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday at the church.
