She is survived by her sister Annette (Dennis Marshall), and their loving children Robert, John, Catherine and also her brother Kevin (Mary) and will be missed by her nieces and nephews.

She was the best grandma I could ask for no matter what was going on she would always try to make me feel better, most of the time with red rose tea and something she had baked and trust me it always worked. There was even one time when I was just a kid visiting my grandma and grandad and I told grandma I wanted some chocolate milk and she said she doesn't have any but I told her I found some chocolate milk powder in her kitchen. She said Tyrone you don't want that it won't taste good it's baking chocolate. I then said but it will make me feel better. So she said ok if it will make u happy I will make it for you. Anyways to sum up this story my grandma would do anything to see me happy and after that day I always knew to listen to my grandma cause baking chocolate taste Horrible as coco mix. I love you grandma
Love your grandson Tyrone pachauer my wife jazmon pachauer and all our kids your great grand children Jaden, dazmon, Chloe, meoni, zendaya, Taylor, and logan
