They moved to Chicago where Gene worked for TWA. A son, Robert, was born in 1951. Sadly, Gene died in 1958. Kathleen and Robert moved back to Pomona and lived with her parents and sister. She went back to school, graduated from La Verne College, and taught 2nd and 3rd grade in Pomona for 25 years. Her father died in 1963, her mother in 1989 and her sister in 1995.
