In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband and soulmate, Dean G. Eckart, Jr., and a sister, Lynn Marie Cheslock.

She is survived by three sons: Brent M. Eckart and spouse Ryan F. Elmy, Brian A. Eckart and wife Julianna K., and Gary J. Eckart. She is also survived by a brother: Larry J. Cheslock, wife Kristin and niece Sarah, along with a granddaughter: Kylie Ann Eckart.
