The family wrote, "'Momma Dukes' was, and still, is a beautiful woman. Her kids and family were her everything. She taught us what not to do, but loved us even when we messed up. She was always there when we needed to talk. We think the things she loved most were pictures, candles, flowers and knick-knacks. Our mom tried to be happy and make everyone else happy. Momma Dukes was the most stubborn women we ever knew. What she wanted more than anything was grand babies and to be a great mom, which she was. -- Damien Williams, You were my ray of light in the dead of night. -- Kody Williams, The grass is always greener on the other side. -- Tanner Comoza -- "Momma tried." Love ya, momma!"

She is survived by her sons, Tanner Comoza, Damien Williams and Kody Williams; mom, Marie Conn; father, Charles E. Conn; sister, Kelly, Blossom, Abbie, Tina, Donna, Julie and Johnna; brother, Scotty.
