Jo (Bradley) Nelson; her daughter-in-law, Catherine Rudenick; and all her grandchildren, and great-grandchildren: (G’ma’s) Sugar Babe, Dolly, Precious, Sugar Plum, Princess, Punkin, Schaetze, Luv, Girl, Teddy Bear, Angel (Chopped Liver), Lil Darlin, Honey Bun, Lollipop, Tootsie Roll, Greatest, Lil Buttercup, Lil Buddy, and Lil Bunny.
