Virlon and Maria returned to the U. S. and lived in Greeneville, South Carolina before settling in Mtn Home in 1960. They enjoyed life in Mtn Home and greatly appreciated their friends and neighbors. The surrounding mountains and deserts provided the ideal recreational environment for their family. Maria was a member of St. John's Episcopal Church.
