She married Gene Batella. They later divorced.

She loved crocheting, traveling, shopping, going to casinos and watching daytime TV programs like soap operas and game shows. She was a member of the former Friendship Southern Baptist Church in Parsons. She participated in the Shaping Lives Group in Pittsburg.

She is survived by her daughter, Kathy Fields, and her husband, Joe, of rural Pittsburg; her granddaughter, Whitney (Fields) Gould of Labadie, Mo.; her stepgreat-grandson, Brandon Gould; her brother, Calvin Mathis of Parsons; and several cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents.
