La Nelle married a true gentleman in William “Bill” Grobowsky on July 4 1941. La Nelle gave birth to their daughter on Jan. 22, 1943.

ahead of her time. She knew long before most that a woman could have a family and a career. La Nelle retired from Hammerman and Gannor Insurance Agency as a Worker’s Compensation Investigator in the late 1960s.
