She married Edward C. Arnold; they blended their families and had a daughter, Amy. She then married James W. Wilkie. She was a loving mother and enjoyed her job as a fashion coordinator and commentator for more than 40 years. She is survived by a large, loving family and was a beautiful role model of faith and grace to all of them. She left a legacy of trust and love for her Lord Jesus Christ.
