In Snowflake she met Wallace M. Turley, of Woodruff, Arizona, grandson of Isaac Turley and Sarah Greenwood.

Later they were married in the Arizona Temple Oct. 23, 1929. They built a home and lived in Woodruff for about 14 years where three daughters were born to them. Because of Margaret’s ill health they were advised to go to a lower climate. They moved to Mesa, Arizona in Nov. 1943.

In 1946 their first son, Wallace Alan was born.

In 1946 they moved to Provo, Utah, where Ella Mae and Donna Lee both graduated from Brigham Young University, and while living there a second son was born.

It was while living there that Wallace received a call to fill a mission in the California Mission. This was the first separation for this family.

In August Ella Mae married Gerard F. Judd and went to Indiana where Gerard was getting his Doctors Degree.

In September Donna Lee moved to Snowflake to teach home economics in the high school.

A little later Margaret and daughter Loreine and two sons moved back to their home in Mesa while Wallace was on his mission. Just prior to this Wallace and daughter Ella Mae had already filled stake missions.

Since then Donna Lee has filled a mission to the New England States and Loreine went to the New North British Mission.
