Survivors include her daughters, Tina Maria Humphreys (Todd) of Nova, and Taria Barker (Mark) of Middletown, OH; her grandchildren, Ruth Siler, Rachel Tudor, and Reane Hostetler; as well as seven great grandchildren. 
She  was preceded in death by her sisters, Mary Kathryn Griffin, Ann Mae Long; and her parents, Nicholas and Lottie Straub (nee: Henry).

My deepest condolences- I loved you mom and admired her sweet, honest attitude. She was always so kind to me!
As the week progressed I thought about what an important, faithful prayer warrior this earth was losing...but what a great saint Heaven was gaining!
God bless you, Tina, as you face these coming days without this vital person in your life, but I know God will bless and keep you. Thank you for setting the bar so high with your excellent care of this precious soul.
