She is listed as an artist in various Evanston city directories from 1909 through 1933 (although she continued painting after that), and in the 1974 edition of "Who Was Who in American Art, 1564-1975: 400 Years of Artists in America." She married Lee (Leo) John Pape between 1925 and 1927, and they lived in Wilmette, Illinois, after that. They had no children.
