In 1911, upon the doctor's advice, she came west and homesteaded at Node. She was later joined by her sister, Bertha, her brother Fred and his daughter, Ida, who made their home with her. For many years they made a home for various boys who needed their love and care.

Surviving her are two nieces, Marguerite Fietz of Lusk and Marie Cartier of Switzerland and a nephew, Pete Germann of Node.

She was a faithful member of the Apostolic Christian Church.
