She is survived by her uncle and aunt, LG. and Alvern McDowell, sisters Valree King of Lawton, OK and Staci Barnett Frye of Fort Worth, Tx. Her nephews Tanner Milson, Canon and Gunnar Frye, niece Rylea Milson Sadler, and great niece Millie McDowell Sadler.

While her loved ones will miss her, they take great comfort in knowing where she is and that they will see her again someday!
