She is survived by her daughter April Dawn Ildefonso and husband Edward Anthony of Charleston, WV; a granddaughter, the light of her life, Eliana Marie Ildefonso; step-grandson Brandon Edward Idelfonso and friend Leila Abdel-Hadi; step-great-granddaughter Alathea Marie Ildefonso; siblings Ruth Rohloff and husband Larry of Stuart, FL, Saundra Beeman and husband Robert of Frostburg, Deborah Keller and Larry of Lonaconing, Lavona Rosenberger and husband Larry of Lonaconing, Sherman Crawford, Jr. of Lonaconing and Lisa Brode and husband Richard of Meyersdale, PA and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was loved and was the best mother a person could ever wish for. She loved unconditionally; forgiving of all faults or sharp words. She was the kind of person who would do anything for anyone and expect nothing in return. We can’t even imagine how hard it’s going to be without her in our lives now but we know she has no more aches and pains, sicknesses, or struggles. She is at rest; peacefully awaiting our reunion one day in heaven.
