She is survived by her 3-month-old daughter Zoey Michelle Belcher, her mother Becky Gonzalez of Fort Worth, her father Darryl Perkins of Austin and several other family members.
Perkins' death made national headlines and shocked Kansas City. Belcher allegedly killed her at their home, then drove to the Chiefs practice facility where he shot himself in the head in the presence of his coaches and the team's general manager.
His mother is the one who found Perkins injured and barely breathing and called police. She has temporary custody of their daughter, Zoey.
Belcher's funeral was held Wednesday.
