She also leaves her sister, Joan Deaky and her husband Bob of Fairfield, half-sister Darlene Baron, half-brother Frank Rappa; and her friend Dan. She also leaves behind, in the care of her son and family, her cat Tanger, who was such a great companion to her for many years.

Besides her mother, she was predeceased by her sister, Francine Martin.

After graduating from Central High School in Bridgeport, she married her high school sweetheart, Arthur DeVellis. She was employed by Bridgeport Brass before becoming a devout wife and mother. She enjoyed cooking, dancing, music, sewing, crocheting, and, most of all, caring for her family.
