She was preceded in death by adoptive parents: Louis L Kirchner and Alice M. Collins Kirchner and birth mother, Janet Motsinger. 

The family would like to thank Enhabit Hospice for their wonderful care: Tim, Tom, Bobby, Janice, Carrie, and many others.   Also, a big thank you to Connie Bodyk and Linda Wild.
