The family live at Belfast in 1948 and 1949, then moved into Greeley, where she graduated from the public high school in 1952. That Fall she began working at the county clerk's office, and later became deputy clerk. She was united in marriage to Edward A.

She and Ed were member of the Loup Valley Rodeo Club for many years and also helped with the Ericson 4th of July Kid's Rodeo. She was secretary of the Amity Cemetery Association and news reporter for the West Nebraska Register and the Greeley County chapter of the American Cancer Society.

I remember when I came home on leave to see Grandma Pogue who was in the hospital in St. Paul before she died and Aunt Charlotte and Uncle Ed came in and I sort of jokingly asked her if she had any of her rolls with her. She laughed and said no. I told her she made the best rolls ever and I haven't been home for any holidays to get any of her rolls. The next day she came back to the hospital with a bag full of rolls for me. They were so good. I shared but it was hard. Easter will always be at your house in my mind for me. Love you, and will miss you, but also happy for you. Love Michelle Matthews
