She was currently a member of First Baptist Church of Delmar. She enjoyed working in her garden, especially picking strawberries.

She is survived by a sister, Wanda Shores (Bob) of Salisbury; brothers, Edward Gambrill (Mary Faye) of Louisiana and Tommy Gambrill of Delmar; a niece, Christal Marshall; a nephew, Robbie Shores; many nieces, nephews and cousins; and her step-daughter, Laura Beth Karch (Brian) of Cambridge.
