She married George Harvey (Jack) Dove on November 1, 1957, and she along with her daughter from a previous marriage, moved to Jack's home in Broome's Island, MD. She became a homemaker but she also worked in the river alongside her husband, oystering, gill net fishing, and crabbing. For a city girl, she took to her new life style as though she were born into it. She loved packing a big picnic lunch to take on the boat on weekends with the family. She enjoyed fishing and spending the day on the water.

She went to work as a Star Route mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service from 1971 until she retired in 1987. She worked out of the Prince Frederick Post Office and served the postal customers in the Dares Beach area, including Bayside Forrest.

After retirement she spent her time with her family and her 3 beloved poodles. She took care of her father until his death in 1990. She became an active member of the Broome's Island Wesleyan Methodist Church until health issues prevented her from doing so. In 1992, she and her husband moved to her daughter's home in Port Republic. In 1995, the entire Burkman-Dove family moved into their new home in Lusby where she lived until her passing.

She is survived by her husband, George (Jack) Dove, her daughter Jeanine Burkman, her grandchildren, Patrick Burkman and his wife Joanna, her granddaughter Lisa Burkman Solier and her husband James; and last but not least her first great grandchild, Jay William Solier, who turned 4 months old the day after Nana went to be with the angels.
