After her education, she was employed by various businesses in Marshfield. She later purchased, owned and operated the Chili Corner Club in the town of Fremont, Clark County, until 1979. At that time she moved to Eau Claire for employment. She was injured in an automobile accident in 1979 and, after hospitalization, continued to reside in Eau Claire.

She was predeceased by her father on May 16, 1984, and by a god-child, Travis Weinfurtner.
