After school she moved to Minneapolis, MN where she worked in a boarding house. She also worked for the Boeing Company of Seattle, WA on the assembly line building B17 and B29 aircraft during WWII. Later she worked as a nurse's aide in the McVille Hospital. Molfried married Raleigh Anderson on June 26, 1948 at West Prairie Lutheran Church, rural Binford, ND. After their marriage they lived and farmed in rural Tolna. Molfried still had an interest in nursing, and worked as a nurse's aide during the winters of 1960-1963 in Mesa and Chandler, AZ. They retired from farming in 1975, and moved to Glenfield, ND where they purchased and operated a gas station and café. In 1979 they moved to McVille, ND.

Molfried lived at Woodside Village since February 2007. Raleigh died on October 5, 2008.
