She also leaves behind 17 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and sister, Kelly Dolores (Jim) Taylor of Scottsdale, Ariz.; and brother Joe (Kay) Adams of Effingham.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Clara Adams; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Frank and Naomi (Mary) Wall; husband, Frank; son, Frank; and son-in-law, Ronnie Heuerman.
