In addition to her husband Walter, and mother Linda, she is survived by four children; son Walter Washington V, (Latoya) of Lancaster, daughter Kiasha Washington of Upper Darby, PA, son Kevin Washington (Darnice) of Coatesville, daughter Shanna Washington (Stephen) of Penndel, PA, and step-daughter, Davionna Washington; sister, Cindy Washington of West Chester; brother, Anthony Washington of Coatesville; three aunts, Margaret Foster, Arlene Goodwin, and Vanessa Goodwin; two uncles, Ronnie Goodwin, and Jerry Goodwin; 25 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.
