She is survived by her son, Chad (Angie) Owl of Vero Beach, Fla., and daughter, Elleita (Brad) Owl Kanott of Cherokee, as well as her eldest sister, Elleita Duff, who resides in Cleveland, Texas.

Franklin Owl, whom she married in 1967, share four beautiful grandchildren, Kyla (Chris), Kalli (Nick), and Kenzi Owl, all of Vero Beach, Fla., and her grandson, Lyric Owl Kanott of Cherokee, N.C., whom she adored greatly, along with her numerous nieces and nephews, are among her most precious possessions.

She will be terribly missed by everyone who knew and loved her. A memorial will be planned at a later time.  Arrangements are not in place just yet.
