Horvath and his wife Cyndi, of Westerville, OH, and David G. Horvath and his wife Mary, of Louisville, KY; her close friend, Peter Major of Erie; her former sister-in-law, Carroll Gallagher, of Erie; and many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the MICU Staff at UPMC Hamot for their compassionate care in her final days with us.
