She returned to Prince Rupert and worked at the Prince Rupert Hospital for several years. She met and married Eric, who was serving in the army and stationed in Prince Rupert with the radio and telecommunications division. She enjoyed swimming and was an endless supporter of Prince Rupert’s first indoor pool. She continued to swim throughout her life and even won two medals in her only senior games.
