In 1951 the couple moved back to the Black Forest area where they ranched and Sally remodeled the ranch house. She was an accomplished artist and was a member of the Black Forest Art Guild. She enjoyed the company of many friends gathering together at weekend dances. In 1998, Sally and Leland moved to Lusk, Wyo., to be closer to their family.
