In 1967 they moved to their home on Maple Hill Drive in Albert Lea and transferred their membership to Trinity Lutheran Church. She was also active in circles and women’s groups there. They spent winter months in Arizona and later made Chandler their home and were associate members of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Chandler.
