Floy then changed professions to Paste-up Artist for various newspapers, until retiring from work in 1970.
Floy studied fine art, where she perfected her style of art using oils, watercolor and pastels. She specialized in landscapes, redwoods, florals and portraits, Floy belonged to several art galleries and societies, the last one being Cherry City Art Guild in Salem, OR.

While in Salem, Floy was a member of People's Church, then Emmanuel Bible Church. Floy was active in many aspects of the church with her husband and family. Floy is happy, happy to be in heaven and happy to be with God!
