She is survived by her daughters, Noel Zupancic and Jill Stetkevych, and her granddaughter, Alyssa Stetkevych, who lovingly called her Grammy. Many cousins and friends but most especially her ‘baby cousin’ Karen (Cruz) Munoz and her best friends Jacqueline Kaim and Nancy Lettieri. She was preceded in death by her parents, George Daniel and Stella Marie (Majka) Buzea and her brother, George Russell Buzea and sister-in-law, Beth Ann (Gerak) Buzea.
