They farmed in Iowa till 1956 when they moved to Philomath, Oregon and later lived in Albany, Oregon. Grace was, first and foremost a homemaker. She enjoyed canning fruit and vegetables and raising flowers, especially cactus. She was an avid collector of salt and pepper shakers and loved to browse flea markets and garage sales. She was a good seamstress and made lots of quilts. She and Al made lots of knickknacks and it was Grace's job to do the painting of them. She and Al had a good marriage of over 46 years.

Grace patiently endured so many physical hard times; she went through seemingly endless surgeries, but she always came back and came through each one of them. She felt positive about beating cancer also, but she died at home in Albany at the age of 63.
