The family move to Delta Colorado in 1939 where she attended school. She married the love of her life, Edward Trujillo when he returned from serving in World War II. They married October 15, 1946 in Salt Lake City, Utah, Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple 1954 after they became members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in 1953.
