She became a mother in 1975 and for the next 21 years was a mother to 9 children. When she met her soul mate, Glenn German Sr. Their journey took them around the country from Peever to Phoenix and places in between. While raising her children she worked at the Circle of Nations School in Wahpeton, ND, SW Headstart, Tekakwitha Orphanage as a caretaker, and Dakota Magic Casino as a kitchen staff.
