She has since been married to Mr. Ray Freeman of Dublin, GA for 23 years, and was step-mother of three children, Carolyn (Trinton) Pharis, Butch (Beth) Freeman, and Marilyn (Charles) Vaughan, along with seven grandchildren, and twenty great- grandchildren.

In addition to her husband, Cleve, Mrs. “Punk” was preceded in death by her parents, Jesse and Lucile Cannon; brother, Raymond “Bud” Cannon, and two sisters, Grace Pierce and Lal Merritt.
