On June 27, 1970, she married John Stelling in Millbank, S.D.

Mrs. Stelling worked as a medical technician for hospitals in Milwaukee and Eau Claire.

Her family said she was a caring and giving woman who liked to help and take care of others. She enjoyed being with her family and friends, reading, and vacationing in Arizona during the winter.
