They then moved back to Sturgis where she was a stay at home mom until the kids were older. She then joined Paul in the family business, the Paul Littman Agency as a licensed agent. Their son Tim joined them after he graduated from high school.
After 51years of marriage Paul passed away while they were at their winter home in Florida. She continued working at the agency into her 80’s, spending several months during the winter at her home in Winter Haven FL.
