Survivors include daughter, Linda Freeman of Whitney, son, Larry Durham and wife Becky of Lakeside Village, daughters, Paula Bettis of Whitney and Lori Williams and husband Todd of Bynum; 10 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and a number of nieces and nephews.

The family would especially like to thank her friends for their friendship and support during the last ten months. Special thanks to Mission Hospice of Cleburne for their compassionate and loving care.
