She was an active member of St. John’s United Methodist Church for over 70 years, serving in many areas. She was also a long-time member of the Seaford Acorn Club and The Soroptimist Club. As her children were growing up, she worked with Nanticoke Little League, Cub Scouts and Sunday School.

She is survived by her two sons, Ralph Palmer (Bev) and Charles Palmer (Danna), grandchildren, Adam (Hannah), Jackie, Thad (Casey) and Kyle Palmer and great-grandchildren, Caleb, Jacob and Willa.

Due to safety concerns in this time of COVID-19, there will be no funeral. A private Graveside Service will be held at a later date.
