In that same year she went to work at Aetna Life & Casualty in Hartford as Records Clerk, where she met her future husband. On October 14th 1961 she married Alfred at Trinity Episcopal church in Harford. She & Alfred would have been married 60 years this coming October. She left Aetna in 1963, prior to the birth of her children. In 1980 she returned to Aetna in her former position, working in Windsor, Hartford & Glastonbury before retiring in 1992. She was an avid camper who enjoyed spending 3 day weekends at Charlie Brown & later Beaver Pines campgrounds.

She was an active member of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Vernon, helping with their prayer group, ECW, Sunday school teacher and Altar guild along with volunteering at their monthly Senior luncheons.
