Thornsley whom she married on February 11, 1967, in Paris; children Daniel “Dan” (Michelle) Thornsley of Coshocton and Valerie Thornsley of Coshocton; grandsons Logan and Dalton Thornsley of West Virginia and Max “Maxie” Thornsley of Coshocton; her two twin sisters Genevieve (Titi) Charleston and Daniele (Gerard J.J.)
