Lloyd and Anne Austad lived on a farm near Roseglen until October of 1960, when they moved to Williston, North Dakota, to be near their daughter, Lillian, then Mrs. Ray Thorseth. They resided there until August of 1964, when they and Lillian, and her son, Larry, moved to Bismarck after the death of her husband, Ray Thorseth. Anne passed away in 1964, and Lloyd continued to live with his daughter until his death in 1966.

Her son, Larry, was in the armed forces, and stationed at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey in 1967, when the Roseglen Golden Jubilee book was published. Lillian was employed, at that time, in the State Treasurers office in the Capitol building.

In 1967, Edward was employed by Westland Oil Company as a bookkeeper for the Propane Division of Bismarck. Betty was secretary to Weldon Haugen, Motor Vehicle Registrar, in 1967.
