The most important thing in the world to Mom was her family! She cared for her siblings at a very young age and would talk about those times in her later years. She loved all of the babies unconditionally and always so very willingly helped out in any way she could until she couldn’t. She loved trips to the lake and fishing especially if some of the kids were there!
She was preceded in death by her husbands, Anthony and Dallas, her parents, daughter Carol “Sam’ Dewitt, son-in-law Doug Dewitt, sister Debbie Daughenbaugh, sister-in-law Tami Tovrea, and her aunt Sharon Jacobs.
Survived by her sister Linda (Tom) Spencer, brother Rick Tovrea Sr., daughters JoAnn (John) Borden, Deanna “Dee” Montenguise, son Anthony (Cheryl) Montenguise Jr., grandchildren Harmony (Adam), Melody (Anthony), Ryan (Heather), Jordan (Nick), Daniel and Jamie (Kyle), great-grandchildren Addison, Andrew, Annabelle, Autumn, Ava, Alena, Kyla, Kooper, Kolby, Emry and Remington, three stepchildren and children.
