After their marriage ended she wed Abraham Marcus in 1970. She was the administrative assistant for several union electrical contractors and remained a strong IBEW member even after retirement. Her belief in charitable volunteering brought her to Hospice of West Palm Beach, where she gave her time for 30 years both in administration and in the retail shop. In her retirement she also cashiered till she was 85 at Publix Supermarket, where she was much loved by her coworkers and customers.

Those surviving and mourning her loss include her children David Grotenstein, Caroline Isaacs (and Randy Mayers) and Ellen Glass, grandchildren Alec and Laura Grotenstein, Emma and George Joseph Glass and Sarah Isaacs-Mayers (and Forrest Winston-Doble) and several of her beloved first cousins.
