Heffelfinger of Mechanicsburg; three grandchildren, Ericka Heffelfinger, Maria Furci and Derek Furci; and her former husband, Neil L. Heffelfinger Sr., of Hummelstown. She also had 15 nieces and 8 nephews. She was close to her nieces Helen Halterman of Ridgecrest, NC, and Kay Draper of Norman, OK, through her letter writing.
