Vera graduated in May of 1937 and in June went to Twin Falls, Idaho with Jack and his wife, Beryl. While in Twin Falls she met Eldon Lintz from North Platt, Nebraska and they were married in Juliaetta on September 3, 1939.

Vera made her home in Twin Falls where Eldon had a job as foreeman of the Ford Garage Used Car Lot.

On July 9, 1940 their first child, Donald Ira, was born. He was premature and a "Blue" baby, so they were not privileged to keep him. He lived only a few hours.

In Janusry of 1941, they decided to go to Glendale, California and take over a service station that they had negotiated for, so they stored all of their furniture and headed out. On arrival they were informed of another transition; the station had been leased to someone else before they got there. Work was extremely hard to find at that time and after spending several months in Glendale. Pixley and Tulare, California looking for work with little success, they headed back home to Juliaette where Vera could be with Mother while awaiting their second child.

These were very dark days for them as she was having complications with her pregnancy and during her sixth month the Doctor put her to bed for the duration of the pregnancy, which kept them in Juliaetta with the folks.

After some time Eldon got work with the Railroad Section Gang and worked with them until the ground froze so hard they had to quit for the winter.

On November 10, 1942 at 4:30 A.M. Vera woke Eldon and told him to call the doctor. On making the call he found the doctor was on another call and could not get there for several hours, so Mrs. Nye came at 5:15 Lynda Caroll arrived a fine healthy baby girl. At last, Vera could look forward to getting out of bed for the first time in three months. What a beautiful morning that was; the ground was covered with new snow; she felt wonderful and her baby was fine. As Vera's Dad sat by the fire in the rocking chair singing through the hymnal, as he so oftem did, she would join in on the old familiar tunes. The only thing that dampened their spirits that day was the fact we were at war with Japan.

They still had the problem of finding work and a home for themselves so in Febuary of 1943 Dad drove Eldon ou to the end of town and let him out to hitch hike to Ogden, Utah where his brother could get him on in a bakery. He went throw snow, sleet, and rain. With his first pay check he rented an apartment and sent for Vera and baby Lynda.
