Her passage to the USA was obtained through Mr Hawking, Booking Agent of Bude, Cornwall. The evening prior to her departure, amidst much excitement, a family farewell was held at her home, at which friends from nearby, Lewis and Owen Braund attended.

She became an active member of the Grange and the Congregational Church.
