She married Henry Sedlacek, Jr. on August 30, 1953, and they had three daughters: Wanda, Karen, and Susan. Ella Marie and Henry farmed in the Marysville, Kansas area until Henry’s death in 1963. She and her three daughters then moved in to Marysville, and after her mother’s death in 1966, she cared for her father in her home. She married Merton Talbot on April 12, 1968, and helped him run his radio and television dealership.
