Arlene and Quincy moved back to the Midwest to live until they moved to Boulder City in 1970. Quincy was a pilot with Trans World Airlines and Arlene traveled all over the world. When Quincy retired, they traveled in their motor home all over the country, stopping to pick up a grandchild or friend along the way to take them on their journey.
