Living in Otis they did custom farming for neighbors. They later bought a farm in Haxtun. In 1952, they built a new home on the farm where they raised five children, Robert, Edwin, Donna, Beverly, and Denise.

She was on a bowling team in Haxtun. She and Mike were very active in the Christ the King Catholic Church.
