On January 7, 1956 she married Seaman third class William D. BAKER at Makalapa Chapel in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. They lived in Hawaii for two years. After Bill's discharge they moved to Anacortes, Washington. Four years later they moved to Santa Ana, California where Bill could pursue a career in commercial art. Bill was an artist for the Orange county superintendent of schools' printing office until his death in 1964.
