On May 9, 1942, she married Richard Wilson. Together they lived in Moose Jaw for many years, with the last five years of Richard’s career with the post office taking them to Ottawa. They returned to Moose Jaw to enjoy their retirement years. Predeceased by her parents, husband Richard, grandson Scott Wilson, three brothers and one sister, she is survived her son Murray of Saskatoon; granddaughters Sheila of Saskatoon, and LaWanda of Calgary; and daughter-in-law Winnifred of Saskatoon.
