The couple began their married life farming in Wildrose, ND.  After a couple of years they then moved to Williston, ND where she worked for Hunt Oil.  In 1959 they welcomed their first child, Renae, and their second, Raymond, in 1961. Son Richard joined the family in 1965.  The family moved to Alexandria 1966 where Hugh worked as a banker.   They built a home on Lake Le Homme Dieu in Alexandria, MN and settled there for over 20 years while raising their family.
