Babs was predeceased by her husband Thomas Katulka (in 1976) and her parents, Michael and Helen (Murasko) Bolicki. Left to cherish her memory are her two daughters, Christine Sorrentino and her husband James, and Sandra Gallagher and her husband Matthew; three grandchildren, Katherine and Patrick Sorrentino and Hannah Gallagher; and her precious grand-pets.
