She and her husband, Frank, would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in February.
In addition to her husband, survivors include five sons, Mark, Michael, Robert, Kenneth and Peter; a daughter, Christine; and a brother, Eugene Cullen.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 9:30 a.m. today in St. Agatha Church, 65 Abbott Road, after prayers at 8:45 in Nightengale Funeral Home, 1884 South Park Ave.
