Towne of Loudon; children, John Thomas (Kathy) Eagen of Buckeye, Ariz., Susan Curtis of Sunfield, Mich., Michael (Sue) Towne and Valerie Ann (Rodney) Geiser, all of Goshen, Ind.; 13 grandchildren; 28 great-grandchildren; sister, Kathryn (Glenn) Elder of Versailles, Ky.; brother, Patrick King of Wentzville, Mo.; and several nieces and nephews.
