She is survived by her children, Rudy Jimenez, Jr., Irene Jimenez Dias (Javier) and Michelle Ayson; nine grandchildren, Sherree Espanola, Alexis Valencia, Selena and Nicole Jimenez, Sirena and Gabriel Dias, Michael and Nicholas Glass, Marc Jackson Jr.; two great grandchildren, Logan Espanola and Ivan Valencia; and a sister, Lucy Diaz.
