She married Jack Wilson Feb. 26, 1956 and started their family. They lived in the Okanagan area before moving to Brennan Creek in 1965, and settling in Vavenby in 1971.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.
