In 1956, they moved with their son, Leroy, to Oklahoma.  While living there, Elmer worked various jobs, and he and Marilyn had their daughter, Connie.  In 1958, they returned to Medford, getting jobs from Stanley Ranch in Eagle Point and Modoc Orchard in Medford.  In 1963, they had their third child, a son, Bruce.  That same year, Elmer began work at Cascade Ranches in Lake Creek.  Then, in 1977, he became Field manager for Eagle Point Irrigation District.  He retired from that position in 1997.

Elmer and Marilyn purchased land in Lake Creek in 1971; and in1975, they began living in a mobile home on the property before building their house.  In 1981, Elmer finished the house, where they lived for 36 years.  Upon retirement from Eagle Point Irrigation District, they purchased a travel-trailer, taking various trips to Oklahoma, Texas, and other states.  They also went to Mexico to help a missionary.  Upon selling the trailer, Elmer started working for the Stanley Ranch part time.
