She was born July 9, 1941, in Washington, D.C., to the late Herbert Lafayette Whitesell and Pauline Marie Gerlach Whitesell.

She leaves behind her two daughters and their husbands, Laura Lee and Tim Surface of Delaplane, and Cathy and John Rogers of Linden; her sister and her husband, Laura and Bob Norfleet, and five grandchildren, Debbie Lauren, Rebecca, Tiffany, Luke and Noah. Spending time with her family was a great joy to her and she will be deeply missed by them.
