She is survived by her son Gary (Judy) Dalton, daughter Sherry (Donnie) Lawson, grandson Zachary Dalton, granddaughters Heather (David) Erdy, Angela Frantz, and Holly (Tim) Shelton, great-granddaughter Mackenzie Frantz, and five great-grandsons, Drew and Dylan Erdy, Reece, Garrett, and Wyatt Shelton, otherwise known as "her little boys".
