They lived in Iowa until 1978 when they moved to Florida. Dorothy and Max joined the Presbyterian Church wherever they lived and were very involved in church activities as well as both serving in several leadership positions at the church.

They were married 56 years. After Max’s death, Dorothy continued her church activities including serving on the preschool board.
