I then moved to Des Moines and worked for Central Life Insurance until 1959, then went to Northwestern Bell and retired from there in 1992 after 33 years and 3 months. In my retirement, I worked for 7 years at Casey's making donuts.
I married Richard McCoy in Indianola on December 26, 1959 and made our home there until 2001. Following that I moved to Newton and have lived there for 18 years.
