She lived on the farm south of Aumsville and grew crops for Stayton Canning Company/Norpac Foods with Raymond for 73 years. She was a member of Immaculate Conception Church and raised five children.

She loved growing a garden and canning her own produce such as her famous dill pickles, cherries, peaches, apricots and pears. She had a green thumb growing many beautiful flower beds around her home. She was talented at decorating her home for the holidays and orchestrated for beautiful weddings for her four daughters.
