She is also survived by two sisters; Patricia Klotz and Irene Smith. She was preceded in death by her parents, Stanley and Edward Smolenski. Besides family, she has also been surrounded by a vast extended family of people whom she affected in one way or another. She had an enormous amount of love that she needed to share. She also adjusted to the chronic nature of her long illness. If you asked her how she was doing, her reply would be:"I'm doing better today." Sometimes it was:"I am much better today." George said he always wanted her tombstone to reflect her spirit by putting I AM BETTER TODAY on it. She will be so sorely missed, because she was such a positive and loving person.
