On June 6, 1951, she was married to her surviving husband, Donald E. Husler, Sr., with whom she was blessed to share more than 67 years of marriage.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her children, Donald "Red" Husler and his wife Cathy of Mifflintown, Stephen H. Husler of Port Royal, Thomas S.
