She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Bill Richardson; brothers, Donald, Joe, Pete, and Robert Gerba; sisters, Mary Conley, Helen Stonestreet, Mel Tahan, and Dorothy Coburn. The family would like to thank Dr. Mike Monaco and the staff of Mission Chateau, Kindred Home Health, and Stratford Commons Rehabilitation for their loving care and support.
