She retired in 2006 and became the wife of Dr. Lowry Harper of Watkinsville, GA, and has been a resident of Watkinsville since her marriage and retirement. She was quite at home in the Georgia countryside since it was the land of her birth, and she had a deep southern belle accent. Her favorite activities were working in her herb and vegetable gardens, collecting cookbooks, and cooking. She also loved travelling and, when her health allowed, she and Lowry travelled across the world enjoying trips throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland, Austria, Italy, Germany, France, and other parts of Europe.

Harper; son Kirk (and wife Christianne) Squires; daughter Heather (and husband Dave) Hubbard; sister Lou Ann (and husband Terry) Demott; nieces Allison and Brie; and grandchildren Abbey and Christian Hubbard, who were very dear to her.
