She is survived by four children, Maria Kon, Aniko Roth, Tibor Szabo, and Eva Isaacs; 11 grandchildren, Jennifer Kon, Michelle Roth, Robert Roth, Lidia Szabo Kraft, Christina Quaine, Tibor Szabo, Eva Trudeau, Mark Trudeau, Adam Trudeau, Maria Szabo Kovacs, and Jozsef Szabo; and 11 great-grandchildren, Jonah Kraft, Elliott Kraft, Lauren Quaine, Brooke Quaine, Tibor Szabo, Stephanie Owens, Eric Goering, Kevin Trudeau, Isabella Kovacs, Maximillian Kovacs, and Jozsef Szabo.
