On December 24, 1906 she was married to Edwin Bloom who passed away May 11, 1936. For many years she had been an operator for the local telephone company and she was a member of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers AFL No. 125. While she had been in frail health for several months, she had continued at her work and her passing was a shock to her many friends. She had been a hospital patient for only two days.
