Grandsons Kim Goff and wife Lacha of Loris and Mark Sarvis of Murrells Inlet, SC; her great- grandchildren, Luke Herring, Taylor, Colin, Emma, and Gia Sarvis, Jaylan and Jai Rowell. Her favorite memories were times spent with Kim and Luke.

The family wishes to give a special thanks to Wendy Rouse, Elsie Hodge, and all the nursing staff at McLeod Hospice in Little River.
