In her later years, she looked forward to visits with her 12 great-grandchildren whom she adored: Emily, Caitlin, Connor and Ella Mott; Hannah, Emily and Samuel Lasher; Jason and Jamie Dupras; Jonathan Rivers; and Nicholas Buchanan and Thane Adams.

She was predeceased by her daughter Elizabeth "Betty" Lively; her son Carlton G. Lasher Jr.; her grandson Jason Lasher; and her siblings Janet Beaman and Alfred Sydney Anderson, both late of Pittsfield, and James Anderson, late of the state of Florida.
