She enjoyed boating, skiing and wintering in Long Boat Key. Her greatest joy was first, raising her two sons, and then being a loving grandmother of six, before becoming a great-grandmother.

She is survived by her two sons, Michael Delande and his wife, Bonnie, of Georgetown, and John Delande of Danvers; her beloved friend and soulmate, Michael Casale; six grandchildren, Christopher and Aaron Delande, Danielle Zenga and her husband, Daniel, Rebecca Grady and her husband, Edward, and Jessica and Melanie Delande; and two great-grandchildren, Addison and Michael, and one on the way.
