She met Bob Hide, an RAF airman, while they were stationed at a British base after the war. The couple later immigrated to Hamilton, Ontario to live and raise a family. Mrs. Hide continued to work for many years as a telephone operator. Both were active in Canadian and British veterans groups. Mrs. Hide was also an executive member of the Royal Canadian Air Force Association (447 Wing).
