Arthurs in the St. Johnís Lutheran Church northeast of Blackwell. In 1939 they moved to Maywood, California, to make their home. In 1942, they returned to Blackwell where her husband entered the United States Army serving during World War II while Mae continued to help her mother and father on the farm along with being a homemaker in her own home. Mae attended beauty college and eventually owned and operated her own beauty shop, Maeís Beauty Salon, in her home in Blackwell. Her husbandís ill health forced her to retire and care for him.
