Owen Jr. of Ventura; her sister, Mary Louise Hahn of Mandeville, La.; three grandsons, Robin Sutherland of Elk Grove, Todd Sutherland of Nixa, Mo., and Christopher Bruder of Smithville, Texas; seven great-grandchildren; and adopted grandchildren, Annette Patterson and Bill Patterson, both of Ceres.
