About a year after the disaster the family returned to Austria-Hungary (Slovenia), Manca's four siblings later returned to the United States but Manca remained in Slovenia where she married Anton Juvan. They had four children: Toucka Juvan; Marjan Juvan (b. 1940, d. 1991); Anica Juvan, married Tone Kosnjek; and Lojzka Juvan (b. 1946) married Tone Zorman.
Manca made occasional visits to relatives in America, as reported in the local press of the time. She died in Slovenia in September 1971 some of her descendants still live in Milje, Slovenia.
