They were married for 49 years. They traveled throughout the Midwest before eventually settling on a farm of 40 acres near Windom, KS where she lived for 46 years. Corene went back to school while raising her children and became a registered nurse when she was in her 40’s. She loved her patients and continued to work into her late 70’s as she always enjoyed serving others.

She also enjoyed church activities and tending to livestock on the farm, especially cows and calves. Most importantly, Corene loved Jesus. She was a long-term member of the Church of Christ.
