She was active in the community, and a lifelong member of Petersburg Lutheran Church.  Mavis and Les were Charter Members of Petersburg Curling Club, and greatly enjoyed dancing to polkas and waltzes.  Once their children were grown, they enthusiastically followed the activities of their grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
