She is survived by her husband of 59 years, Philip C. Bradley; son, Douglas Bradley (wife, Linda, deceased); daughters, Sheila (Michael) Neely, and Jill (Matthew) Schieve; grandchildren, Mackenzie, Ethan, Nicole, and Mitchell; and many special nieces and nephews. Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Evelyn Gray; and brother, John “Jack” Finnerty.
