She returned to work after her youngest started school working several years at Manitoulin Lodge. She then worked at Manitoulin Transport till she retired. Many of the staff there enjoyed the times she would bake her famous butter tarts and take and share with the entire staff. She enjoyed family time where should could enjoy time with the great grandchildren. Any family function she was sure to be there often tolerating loud music, lots of chaos and at times some pretty crazy behavior.
