She is survived by her parents, Kevin and Pamela; a sister, Samantha; nieces and nephews, Tristan, Karina, Cameron and Breanna; an uncle, Bryan Petty; and aunts, Audrey Reinhardt and Verna Fitzpatrick. She was predeceased by her brother, Jason, in 2006.

A celebration of her life will be held at the residence at 520A Track Ave. in Cutchogue Sunday, Oct. 20, from 2 to 4 p.m. The Rev. Denise Allen of First United Methodist Church of East Hampton will conduct services at 3 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Southold Animal Shelter would be appreciated.
