In 1952 they left Germany for the United States where they worked on various farms in the Sauk Prairie area, and became US citizens on May 24, 1974 which they were very proud of. Both she and her husband enjoyed numerous travels within the U.S. and abroad, camping in their RV, and fishing in Lake Wisconsin.

Besides her parents she was preceded in death by her husband Karl in 2008, her siblings Paul, Anna, Lotai, and Raisi.

Her German sass and spunk will be missed by her longtime neighbors and all her many friends while living at Maplewood Village and Nursing Home.
