Survivors include daughters, Brenda Diane Pope, Maydean Woodiel (Woody), and Jeanette Randazzo (Randy); sons, Royce Rosamond (Sandra), Rickey Rosamond, Frankie Rosamond, and Richard Whatley (Jennifer); brother, Jack Smith (Mary); 12 grandchildren, and 30 great-grandchildren.

The family wishes to express their sincerest thanks to the staff of Brandon Nursing and Rehabilitation for their care and support.
