Lucille was united in marriage to Oscar Klipfel on May 22, 1950, in Ortonville, MN. They made their home near Forbes on their own farm. They later moved to West Virginia and later to California in the early 1950’s. In the late 1950’s, they made their way back to their farm near Forbes. They started a dairy operation, operating it until 1981, when they retired. Lucille began working at Trinity Bible College as a cook, working there for several years.
