She is survived by her mother, Lila Mann; son, Gary Wayne Dunback of Tulsa, OK; daughters, Heather Zimmer and her husband Timothy of Westville, OK and Christina Gatlin and husband Tim of Texas; brother, David Mann of Checotah; and grandchildren, Kaylyn, Savannah, Elaina, Leilani, Christopher, and Shelby.
