She is survived by her sisters June Pittman of Washington D.C. and Charlotte Lilla Frinak of Kansas City. Her four children Allen Klinge (Amelia Ann), Norman Klinge (Frances), Nancy Livengood (Ron), Cheryl Warren (Gene).
Nine grandchildren Mike Klinge (Jamie), Brandon Klinge (Wendy), Jordan Klinge (Farrah), Todd McGhee, Brian McGhee (Naomi), Andrea Clawson, Joseph Peterson, Alicia Fetters (Jonathan), Phillip Warren (Hannah) and 24 great grandchildren.
Her quiet and mild spirit and mild manner was an example to all.
Even when she needed a caregiver, she did her best to be hospitable and put others first. Her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and friends always knew they would be welcomed with open arms, a listening ear, and a good home cooked meal.
