On November 1, 1969 in La Porte, IN, she married Gary McMahan. Surviving are her children, Derek (Erica) McMahan of Chesterton and Garett (Melissa Rodriguez) McMahan of New York, New York; 3 grandchildren, Regan Krachinski, Addison McMahan and Gunnar McMahan; sisters-in-law, Bonnie (Dennis) Timm and Cindy Scheidel, both of La Porte; brother-in-law, Patrick McMahan of La Porte; and nephews, Jarred Timm, Eric and Brian Scheidel, and Steve McMahan.

After graduating from La Porte High School in 1968, Sig received a Stenographic Diploma from the South Bend College of Commerce in June of 1969. She was inducted into the Alpha Delta Chapter of Alpha Lota Sorority in 1969. Sig worked as a Teacher's Aide at both Boston Middle School and St. John's Lutheran School. She took great pride in her students as a Teacher's Aide and an even greater pride in her sons.

Sig loved her dogs (Major, Toby and Tootsie) and her cats (Miss Kitty, Pretty and Ugly). She enjoyed watching the Hallmark Channel, going out to the movies, attending concerts, and even recently attending Comic Conventions with her son and grandson.

Sig's biggest enjoyment and love revolved around her two sons. She was eager to help with no questions asked. She helped running her sons to all their sporting events and even helping with acting and theatrical productions. She loved helping her children with their studies by quizzing for tests and helping make 3x5 flashcards. Her sons were the focus of her life.
