She was a great wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and will be forever missed.

In addition to her beloved husband, Robert, she is survived by her, daughters; Chery (Allen) Nicholas, Jan (Terry) Black and Denise (Jim) Short; grandchildren, John (Carrie) Nicholas, Scott (Maria) Nicholas, Mark (Katie) Nicholas,Mandy (David) Kaufman, Beth (Jake) Berglin, Jen Short and Jarrod (Jess) Short; great-grandchildren, Jess, Joe, Juliana, Ethan, Brendan, Natalie, Benjamin, Eli, Noah, Elise, Owen, Miles, Josh, Jaxon and Isabella; brother’s in law, Tom (Linda) Kotrych, Jerry (Mary) Kotrych and sister in law, Lorraine Kotrych.
