Moner (Karen) of Leavenworth, KS, and Michael Franklin Moner of Kansas City, MO; nine grandchildren, Justin High, Jamie High, Jenny High, Cybil Jackson-Leslie, Brandon L. Mack, Brian K. Mack, Michael Franklin Moner, Jr., Rebecca Marie Moner, and Angelia Nicole Moner; 19 great grandchildren; two sisters, Dixie Singleton of Moberly and Lucille Bowyer of Meadville; one brother-in-law Glenn Johnson of Brookfield; and her special feline fantastic, Cameron.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Pete and Ruth Cooper;  husband, Nick Moner; three sisters, Martha (Cooper) Johnson, Helen (Cooper) Atwood, and Louise (Cooper) Muck; one brother, William Franklin Cooper; one grandson, Theodore Michael Jackson; one great granddaughter, Korah S.
