She is survived by two daughters, Linda J. Gianakakis and her husband Steve of Ipswich, and Deborah L. Comeau and her husband David of Rowley; three grandchildren, Chrissy (Gianakakis) Lang and her husband Dave of Ipswich, Michael Comeau and his wife Chastity of Zebulon, NC and  Daniel Comeau of Rowley; five great grandchildren, Marshall and Gianna Lang, Felicia Smith and Nicole and Victoria Comeau; a brother, George Brockelbank and his wife Nancy of Sebring, FL, sisters-in-law Janice and Loretta and many nephews and nieces.
