She is survived by several nieces and nephews; great nieces and nephews all whom she loved and you could say she was their other mother. They were all perfect, as in her eyes they could do and never did any wrong. Aunt Mandy or Nashue, as she was named by Andy when he was 2, had a way with making each one of her “babies” think and feel that they were her favorite, and those who were know who they are. Mandy was preceded in death by her parents, Everett and Dora Mae (Stell) McArthur; her son, Jeffery Todd Routh; her brother Buddy McArthur and her sister Patsy Saldaña.
