Owen said it was "Love at first sight!". And her devotion to him never wavered in 66 years of marriage. They lived on the family farm and raised 5 children. Times were often tough but they persevered.As a young woman she worked at her father's large bakery ( Tastie Baker's) in Shelburne where she developed her great love of cooking.

Her husband Owen was a busy self employed landscaper but they were later able to find time to enjoy their 'camp' in Chester Grant, NS.
