She was discharged as a 1st Lieutenant in March of 1946. After one year as a Industrial Nurse at Carrier Corporation, she returned to Rouses Point, where she met and married Raymond E. Marleau, the Industrial Arts teacher at Rouses Point High School. They had two children, Barbara Jean and John Lovell, both of whom predeceased her. Her husband died in 1966. Following his death, she was employed as Charge Nurse at Cedar Hedge Nursing Home until retirement in 1988.
