After retirement, she volunteered for Family Children Services and then later the Clothing Closet at the Reformation Lutheran Church.

She was predeceased by her husband, Albert; her parents Guðmundur R. Joelsson and Ólöf Jóhannsdóttir; her sisters Ellen Walstrom, California, Hanna Zorn, Ohio, and Gusta Guðmundsdóttir, Iceland; and her brother Eyjólfur Guðmundsson, Iceland.
