She married Jay Reeder on May 16, 1945. The couple lived in La Grande until 1965 when they moved to California and then to Pahrump. She was an avid Dogers fan.

Survivors include her husband of Pahrump; children, Steve, Vernon and Virgil; a brother, Gene Gillis of La Grande; 13 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. A son, Rodney; a daughter, Janice; and a sister, Juanita Allen, all died earlier.
