In 1947, she married Leroy D. Day and they had four children. She watched them play in many brooks and rivers. She fried many a brook trout. She was well known as a dowser. In 1977, she graduated from nursing school at the age of 49. She and Roy, along with her brother, John and his wife, Althea enjoyed square dancing and traveling in the States, as well as abroad.

She was a proud member of the American Legion Auxilary for many years. Mum was the caretaker of many and was known for her green thumb. The Gore Road never looked as good as in her day.

Day and his wife, Susan of Bethel, daughters, Amy Smith and Mary Day of Bryant Pond; her sister, Alice McGinnis of North Carolina and sister-in-law, Althea Hathaway of South Paris.
