They moved back to the west side of Washington for the next 15 years and then made the final move to Oroville in 2000.
She continued golfing, biking, Sunday drives and took up line dancing. She was very active in her church and loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and friends. Her family was the most important thing in her life.

She had a wonderful quality of making friends wherever she went. She could meet a complete stranger and would know their life history within an hour. She was always lending a helping hand to whoever needed one. She was a wife, mother and friend and she will be greatly missed by all.
