Altizer; her brother, Jim Altizer; her brothers-in-law, Jesse Harmon, William ‘Bo’ Richardson, and Danny Richardson. She is survived by her mother, Helen Naff Altizer; her brother and sister-in-law, Richard and Deneise Altizer; sisters-in-law, Martha Altizer and Mary Richardson Harmon; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Jimmy and Rhonda Richardson, Thomas ‘Butch’ and Ella Richardson, Jeff and Terri Richardson; a multitude of nieces and nephews; as well as special friends, Dana Meadows, Rolita Cannon, Steve Cannon, and Pat Robinson.
