When the Wards store closed in 1968, she went to work for Wilson's Men's Clothing Store until she retired 14 years later in 1982.

Mae moved to Brookside Manor when her health began to fail and then moved to the Clara City Care Center in 2003.

She was involved in many community organizations including the Degree of Honor, American Legion Auxiliary, Business and Professional Women's Club, the Women's Committee of the Chamber of Commerce and volunteered with the blood drive. She was a lifetime member of Our Savior's Lutheran Church and was active in her church circle, was a Sunday School teacher and a visitor with the Agape Group. She was a member of the Senior Advisory Committee, and after retirement she volunteered for 14 years at Luther Haven Nursing Home with the bingo games.

She is survived by her niece: Donna (and James) Meisner of Montevideo; and other relatives.
