She found joy in her grandchildren: Corinne and Brooke Good; Erin, wife of Jared Krupp; Adam and Hannah Reimel. Also surviving are her siblings: Betty Kramer of Ephrata, Mildred Schnoke of Pine Grove, Richard Moyer of Denver, and Charles Moyer of Lititz.

The family wishes to give a special thank you for the care given to her at Keystone Villa of Ephrata, and Hospice For All Seasons, and to Pastor Bob Smallman for his constant support.

Funeral services will be private at the convenience of the family and are under the care of Gravenor Home For Funerals, Ephrata.
