Like some of the borders she lived with, Barbara was employed at the Rim Plant in Onaway.

From 1953 to 1955 Bill lived in Saginaw but retained his job with Chevrolet. By 1956, Bill and Barbara were living back in Flint, and he had become the Plant Manager for the V8 engine plant, Chevrolet motor division of General Motors Corporation.

"Everone in the family liked Bill. He was very quiet. He smoked wonderful cigars. When Bill Lived in New York he would come to Flint on business and always stayed with Aunt Gadys. I think because she was a wonderful cook." see 1930 Census
