She moved to Citrus County where she met and married the late Wiley Henry, Sr. To this union were born sixteen children. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her passion was caring for her family while teaching by example; a Christ centered way of living. 
Later in life she married Mr. Johnny Hill who also preceded her in death, also two step-sons, Rudolph and Emanuel Hill.
