After graduation, she was living with her mother's brother, George Payne and family in the Wynnefield section of Philadelphia and working as a secretary in a law office. Around 1935 she married William Wesley Campbell from a Marple family. They lived in a house on Franklin Street, and her father Elwood lived around the corner in a house on Sproul Rd. On Saturday September 30, 1939, she died by "illuminating gas poisoning". The coroner determined that it was a suicide. She was buried in the Campbell family plot at Glenwood Cemetery.
