Russian terms of endearment for an in-law

Hi. I'm working on a story set modern day in Pittsburgh. The husband is Russian and his parents live with them. What would appropriate terms of endearment be for his parents from their daughter-in-law? The family is very close-knit. She is not Russian, but has been learning Russian.

I've tried looking up terms of endearment as well as family names, but I'm having trouble coming up with a good answer via google or translations. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
