She is survived by her daughter, Pamela Easter and her husband Clarke of Dallas, TX; son, Jeffrey Klingman and his wife Debbie of Yorktown, IN; 3 grandchildren; 5 great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and their sons Darryl and Bill Klingman.
