She is survived by her sons, Roger Mansur and wife Barbara of Elkhart, and George Mansur of Tucson, Ariz.; grandsons, Marcus Hernandez of Houston, and Manny Mansur of Palestine; granddaughters, Lydia Ann Mansur of Houston, and Shyna Trussell of Elkhart; also 10 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
