She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Todd and Sandy Swenson, of San Francisco, CA, and her daughters and sons-in-law, Karen and Gary Kingsbury of Thomaston, CT and Kristi and Bruno Alcouffe of Bonnelles, France; her four beautiful grandchildren, Jessica Campbell (Wayne), Emily Gagnon (Justin), Etienne (Kae) and Olivier Alcouffe, and her dear great-granddaughters, Semira Campbell and Aesha Gagnon.
