Following Raymond’s death in March of 1988, she continued to live on the farm the rest of her life.

She and Raymond were blessed with three children, Everett, Janice and Ralph, and then 11 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and 12 great-great-grandchildren, plus many nieces, nephews and special friends.
