Her Aunts include Barbara York and Denise Gionta, and she dearly loved her cousins, Cali Murphy-Engle, John Toal, Vincent Gionta, and Noah Gionta and many other beloved family members.

Her total family reaches far and wide and includes the entire Yancey family, her Godson Robert, her Goddaughter Hayven, best friends Jenifer Hodge, Taylor Davis, Nikki Ryan, Sarah Sheppard, and many many more.

She is now at peace with her beautiful angel daughter, Natalee E. Yancey and her father Kevin J. Wright. Rest in peace our new angel.
