In October 1976 the family and Beal Building Services Inc. moved to the family cabin in Hackensack where they had many happy and productive years.

After retirement Doris and Harlan moved from Hackensack to the sun belt in Pine River, MN, where they enjoyed many years in retirement. Doris had many hobbies, was very social and had many friends. She was giving of her time for many good causes. Her yard and gardens could have been state parks. Many enjoyed her wonderful cooking, baked goods and canned goods. Doris and Harlan were true partners in every way and are now reunited in a better place.
