She was preceded in death by her son, Robby and three brothers: Donald (who died in infancy), Garn V.

The family would especially like to express their love and thanks to Kimberly Snow and Tracy Gardner (granddaughters) for all the love and care given to Mom. Also great appreciation to Carol and Marty Madsen, two angels, who devoted much time, work and love to our beloved mother. Mom would also want a special acknowledgment to her "doctor" of many years, Dr. Susan Chassen.
