They moved to Igloo, S.D. where they lived for 15 years and started their family. They moved to Security, Colo. in the summer of 1966. She worked in clerical support at Ampex Corporation in Colorado Springs for 22 years.
She enjoyed playing Scrabble, solving crossword puzzles, and always had an appreciation for a good joke. She also loved to draw, sew and crochet. She always provided support for her family in times of need.
