Shortly after they were married they moved to Butte, Montana and she worked in the St. James Hospital.  They moved to Idaho Falls in 1959 and then moved to Pocatello in 1962.  She served in her wards faithfully and was a great example of Christ like love serving others. After her children were raised and they retired, they moved to Island Park and managed campgrounds for the forest service.
