She married Sylvester Hartzheim (Shorty) in December 1947 and was blessed with three daughters during 46 years. She was a gifted artist and spent years sharing her crafts along with Shorty at various craft shows. For 27 years, she delighted students with her delicious cooking at Spring Road Elementary School in Neenah, even if later in life she claimed nobody liked her cooking.
