      Miss Shampine returned to Carthage in 1947 to live on North Clinton Street with her ill mother, who died in 1965. She had since resided there.

      She resumed general and private-duty nursing in 1950 at West Carthage Community Hospital and the old Carthage Hospital on State Street until 1969, when she retired.
