Millard of Solon, Bradley (Alison) Burke of Cincinnatus, and Christopher (Tanya Ballard) Burke of Cincinnatus; her great-grandchildren, Adyson and Brynlee Burke, Emma, Jordan and Katelyn Millard; several nieces, nephews and cousins.


In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her daughter, Melanie Rea in 2018; a sister, Vernetta Mowers; and brothers, Roy Upham and C. Herbert Upham.
