After Bill's return from his World War II service in the Marine Corps, they married on December 7, 1945, and enjoyed 63 years of marriage. Helen supported Bill's ministries throughout his career, first in Ohio, then Illinois, and finally at John Calvin Presbyterian Church in Apache Junction Arizona, until Bill's retirement in 1990. During their time in Illinois, Helen worked as a librarian for both the public and school libraries and was involved as a Girl Scout leader for many years. After moving to Arizona she served as Moderator for the Grand Canyon Presbyterial.
