The marriage ended in divorce in 1970, but Shirley continued to live in Torrance where she became a court transcriber for 12 years. She then moved to South Gate, California and worked for Northrop Corporation until her retirement at 62. Afterwards, she moved to Farmington, Utah where she lived until her death.
