She was preceded in death by her husbands: Robert Judson Harner (father of her children) in 1985 after 42 years of marriage and Roy Hostetler (father of step children David and Naomi) in 2002.  Also pre-deceasing her were 2 grandsons, 1 granddaughter, all 7 siblings, her parents and all of her classmates from the Mantua Township High School class of 1943.

She was involved in many Bible quizzing teams and women’s activities at Crossroads Community Church in Shalersville and a longtime manager at Rt. 43 Laundromat in Streetsboro.
