She is survived by five daughters, Laurie Wantz and husband, Ed of Emmitsburg, MD, Brenda Titman and husband, Richard of Gettysburg, PA, Nadine
Sanders of Ormond Beach, FL, Leah Mort and husband, Dave of Fairfield, PA, and Doris Taylor and husband, Anthony of Reisterstown, MD; eight grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and a nephew, Gordon (Gene) Brauning of Deal Island, MD.
