She is survived by five of her children, Richard (Liv) Carson, Oklahoma; Marilyn (Harold) Fiscus,  Ridgway; Sharon (George) Umphlett, Greensburg, PA; John (Donna) Carson, Ridgway; and Cindy (David) Blades, Seaford, DE.  She is also survived by 13 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren, a brother Gayle Holmberg, Hendersonville, NC, and several nieces and nephews.  Besides her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a son Robert Carson, 3 brothers, Clarence Holmberg (Junior), Merle Holmberg, Ronald Holmberg, and a nephew, Bradley Holmberg.
