Survivors include three daughters: Linda Shea of Peoria, Carol of Oldsmar, FL and Diane (Chris) Roy of New Port Richey, FL; four sons: Don (Rebecca) of Peoria, Tom (Susie), Tim (Mary Jane) both of New Port Richey, FL and Dennis (Crystal) of Jacksonville, FL.: 14 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and one great-great granddaughter; four sisters: Mildred Bailey of Redding, CA, Eloise Filzen of Jacksonville, FL., Dorothy Crone of Metamora and Jeanette Griffith of Eureka.
