She later married Merle McRevey on Sept. 16, 2000 in Holiday Shores Baptist Church, and he preceded her in death on Dec. 22, 2018.

She loved solving mysteries and puzzles–skills she put to use in her genealogy research. She enjoyed helping others find their ancestors and was the DAR registrar for many years.

After retirement from Wood River Township Hospital, she and her husband Don opened a Precious Memories porcelain doll making studio where she taught doll making and created many award-winning dolls over the years. Later she had other jobs, including Presley Tour guide, with the bonus of travel. She enjoyed camping, crafts, quilting, sewing, painting, travel, cruises, playing games and genealogy. Most of all she loved spending time with family, particularly her grandchildren.
