Preceding her in transition from this life were her parents, Stella and Carl Carver; brothers, George and Carl Jr.; sisters: Nina, Dorothy, Zara, Linda, Clifford, and Vickie; and granddaughter, Ashlee. Remaining here to carry on her legacy of love are sisters, Janet (Johnny) Johnson and Kay Hensley; brother, David (Linda) Carver, and her children: Sherry (Don) Harrison, Bobby Trevathan, Karen Sue (Tracy) Basenback, and Debra Armstrong.
