She is survived by her children, Veronica (Jerry) McMenemy, Mary Ellen (Denny) Parker, Walter (Christine) Adamkosky, and Michael Adamkosky, 8 grandchildren, and 20 great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, please consider contributions to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, PO Box 50, Memphis, TN 38101, or a charity of your choice.
