On June 1, 1947, she married Vern W. Hein, and had 2 children, Ronald Vern and Charleen Rae.  The family lived on a farm southwest of Wolsey SD until they moved to Huron SD in 1966.

Lonabelle's career started as a school teacher, then a bookkeeper.  She then worked for the ASCS office for 10 years, followed by 20 years with the National Bank of South Dakota as a teller.  In her free time, she enjoyed reading, embroidery, crocheting, camping & fishing, and spending time with her family.

She was a member of St. Johns Lutheran Church in Wolsey.  She was active in ladies aid and taught Sunday School for 10 years.  After moving to Huron, she joined Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church as a member for many years.
