These include Ronald Landis Clemens and his wife, Holly, of Lititz, and their two sons, Jared and Adam Clemens; Douglas Kent Clemens and his wife, Tonie Kline, of Baltimore, Md., and their three children, Julia, Eli and Conrad Clemens; and LeAnne Clemens Appleby and her husband, Michael Appleby, of York, and their two sons, Matthew and Benjamin Appleby. Mary also is survived by her twin sister, Martha Blank, and another sister, Libby Musselman, both of Souderton.

She also was preceded in death by her sisters, Sara Landis and Susan Frankenfield, and her brothers, Abe Landis and Levi Landis.
