Kling of Newmarket NH, and Anne Marie Dunne and her husband John of West Newton, "Grammie" of Connor, Campbell, Evelyn, Ezri and Daniel and sister of Joan A. Donnelly and her husband Phil of Newtonville and the late Francis B. and Joseph E. Driscoll. She was also the loving aunt to many nieces and nephews.
