Together they had two children and she was a stay at home mom. She was involved in her children's activities and became a cub and girl's scout leader and was like a mom to her children's friends.

She enjoyed spending time at Firekeepers Casino, sewing and had many hours having reunions and swimming with family and friends.
After her kids were grown, she went to work for McDonald's. Over the 13 years she was there she had made lots of friends, some she even called family.
