She is survived by her sisters, Fay Horn of Cragsmoor NY and Ruth Ann “Ruby” Bailey of Vero Beach FL; her children Deborah Halstead of Kingsland TX and Todd Demorest of Kerhonkson NY; step-children John A. Sartorius III of Manassas VA, David Sartorius of Bolton MA, and Thomas Sartorius of Raleigh NC; nine grandchildren, several nephews, nieces, grand-nephews and grand-nieces.
