Louvier, whom she married on August 22, 1953, and who died on September 29, 2014; a son Arthur Louvier; her parents, Ambrose A. and Gertrude A., nee Durkee, Menard; three brothers, Charles, Clifford and Bill Menard; and two sisters, Betty Pinkley and Jeanne Walton.
Surviving are two sons, James Jr. (Patricia) Louvier, and Christopher (Kelly) Louvier;
five daughters, Michelle Louvier, Yvonne (David) Polson, Gerri Louvier, Judy Louvier, and Amy Louvier;
eight grandchildren, Janice (Geoffrey) Schuchart, Abby Louvier, James Louvier III, Christopher Louvier Jr, Eric (Shannah) Reamer, and Joshua Melvin, Jeffrey Melvin, and Corey Melvin;
four great-grandchildren, Sophia Schuchart, Atticus Melvin, and Delaney and Everly Reamer;
