In 1903, her husband purchased land in Fresno County, California. She accompanied him on two of the four trips he made to California while living in Illinois, saw the land constituting the Willow Lake Ranch, and helped plan their future home in California. She was very anxious to move out to California. While her husband was out there busily engaging in preparing for the new home, a telegram was received calling him back to Illinois. After a short illness she died.
