Her loving and favorite niece, the daughter she never had, Shirley Bruce. Another adopted daughter, Daniel Leary and her Godchild, Zion Leary who even though she could be a handful at times, she loved her too.  An adopted daughter-in-law, Gloria Miller and another once daughter-in-law, Sherry Harrell.  A loving friend and special confident, Ann Patricia Moore, whose house she stayed at more than her own. Linda Spruill, who affectionately called her “Mama” whom she also considered just like a daughter to her whom she loved dearly as well.
