She survived by her loving husband Fred who also went to the Lord eight days later.  Remaining survivors include her daughter Barbara Fink of Hamilton Montana, her sons Mark Adolf of Phoenix Arizona, Chris Adolf of Everett Washington and David Adolf of Graham Washington.  She leaves behind 9 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild as well as many loving and caring friends.
