She was preceded in death by her parents; one brother, Michael Roy Surls; two sisters, Donna Lee Palmer and Barbara Jean Edwards; and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

A memorial service will be held at noon on Friday, April 6, at Ferry Funeral Home in Nevada with Pastor David Rorabaugh officiating.
