After retiring she volunteered as the librarian for Visitation School and enjoyed many years reading books to each first grade class.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and grandson Louie Hertel, as well as her siblings, Ernest, Francis, Robert and Willis Evers; her three sisters, Lucille Kempen, Sr. Anna Evers and Barbara Meeuwsen.
