She will be sadly missed by her two sons; Rod (Whitney) Littleton of Uhrichsville, Doug (Evelon) Littleton of Dover; her daughter, Tawnya Nanashe of North Canton; four grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; two brothers, Harry (Skip) Mann and John (Judy) Mann; two sisters, Clara Caddell, and Arlene (Don) White; along with her sister-in-law, Eleanor Mann.

She was preceded in death by her son, Gerald Littleton; daughter, Tricia Littleton; two brothers, Howard and Stanley Mann; sister, Hilda Mann; step-mother, Ida Mann; along with her son-in-law, John Nanashe.
