Her faith was nurtured at Scio Methodist Church and most recently, Otterbein United Methodist Church in New Philadelphia.

She will be deeply missed by her family including her daughter, Karen (Todd) Miller of Dover; her grandchildren, Tiffany (Chuck) Zobel and Ryan (Kris) Howell; and her great-grandchildren, Bella and Ava Zobel and Cole, Naiya, Geovani, Zariah, and Sophie Howell; and her sister, Janice Ulrich of New Philadelphia.
