She and Chester made their home in Elwood where they raised their family.
She was a member of First Christian Church in Elwood, where she was active in CWF, taught Sunday school for eight years, sang in the choir and helped put together many booths for the Gosper County Fair. She belonged to the neighborhood birthday club and was always concerned about her friends and neighbors.
She was an excellent seamstress and made many clothes for her daughters, including a wedding dress. She also made costumes for Halloween and school operettas. Her beautiful flowers were her special pleasure, but her family was her greatest joy. She especially liked having her grandchildren stay with her when they were growing up.
