In early 1946 they moved back to Modesto and started a family. In July 1963, they settled in Aptos with their three sons following Richard's transfer with the U.S.D.A.

She also cherished her summer trips to the family home in Alpine County. We would like to express our gratitude to Hospice, her amazing caregivers at home, and the wonderful staff at De Un Amor in Corralitos, CA.
