Betty and "Doc" raised their five children in Stevens Point and upon Doc's retirement after forty four years of practicing dentistry they moved to Amherst Junction, WI, near family cottages on Lake Emily.

Betty was a member of St. James Catholic church in Amherst, as well as a member of the ladies' Altar Society .Betty especially enjoyed the many years she spent as a volunteer at the St. Vincent de Paul Society Resale Shop. A much anticipated event by her visiting grandchildren was a trip to "St. Vinny's", returning with a special find.
