Valarie Fontenot, Ann Landy, and Christina Thomas; great nephews, Ryan Smith and Dr. Kyle Smith; a special
great niece, Shelbi Fontenot. She is also survived by her sisters-in-law Catherine Kiesler and husband Jim,
Gail Cavett; and brother-in-law Alvin Topham and wife Marsha.

Della was preceded in death by her parents, William and Jane Mason; her sister and brother-in-law, Janet
