Together the couple made their home on a farm outside of Hudson, South Dakota. Carlotta worked for several years at Cooperative Farmers Elevator (CFE) in Hudson. She loved spending time outside, helping with farm work, camping, snowmobiling, and riding her Harley.

Carlotta held a special place in the hearts of her grandchildren and was comforted in knowing that the chapters in her book will continue to go on through them.
