During the first year of teaching music at Manilla, Iowa, I married William D Bottolfson on December 8, 1945. His father was Carl William Bottolfson, May 12, 1897-December 8, 1950. His mother was Margaret Finnegan, June 8, 1899-August 14, 1982, C W Bottolfson was born in Allamakee County, Iowa, and Margaret was born in James, Iowa, three miles south of Hinton.

Besides teaching in Manilla, I taught in the other Iowa towns of: Galva, Kalona, Arcadia and Carroll. I taught with Bill in Ponca, Nebraska, and he also taught in Sheldon and Carroll.

We spent several summers at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, where Bill earned his master's degree and I participated in four operas.
