During her time of service she met her husband of 55 years. Together they moved to the United States where they raised their beloved family.

She loved to smile and wave at anyone that passed by her whether it was on her post or on her porch at home. When she wasn’t at her post it was a common sight to see her riding her bike through Burlington and always loved to stop for a conversation.
