Along with her five children, she raised many more, as her house was often the center of activities.

She is survived by children, Deborah Wilson of Oak Ridge, Wayne Fortner of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Sandra Vaughn and husband Alan of Clinton, Linda White and husband Randall of Clinton and Michelle Selvey and husband Jeff of Oak Ridge; 8 grandchildren, Carmen Suits and husband Mike, Jeffrey Barger and wife Beverly, Candace Gallaher, Blake White and wife Samantha, Corey Fortner, Brooke Tant and husband Kyle, Cody Fortner and Nathan Vaughn and 7 great-grandchildren, Natalee Barger, Kaleb Suits, Logan Suits, Carleigh White, Haileigh White, Ryder Gallaher and Kenzleigh White.
