She is survived by her husband, Russell Thomas; her brother Pat Meara, sisters Betty Stevenson and Ruth Berg; her son, Steve Sutton; and her daughters, Nancy (Jim) Williamson, Karen (Tim) Huffman, and Mary Anne (Steven) Doi . Two grandchildren proceeded her in death—Brandon Huffman and Mike Williamson.
