From there Hope and Bill shared a military life in the United States Marine Corps until 1966 when Bill retired and they relocated to Scottsdale, AZ. They settled in Prescott Valley in the late 1980s. Hope was a strong nurturer to her family and community, providing love and friendship to all she met. She volunteered in each community she lived in serving as President of the Officer's Wives Club; Red Cross Volunteer; Girl Scout Leader; Sunday School Teacher; and a variety of other duties. The delight of her life was her faith and her family.
