When she was 19 years old the family moved to Houston, TX, and lived there a short time, moving back to Ida Grove, and to Sac City in 1985.

On July 12, 1985, Mavis was united in marriage to James Weisenborn in Sac City. This union was blessed with three children: Kathryn Sue, Amy Marie, and Christopher James. She was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church and Ladies Aid.

She was a wonderful wife and mother who had a passion for many things including painting houses, reading, listening to country music, collecting dolls, decorating, shopping, and traveling to different parts of Iowa. She adored her children and grandchildren and loved spending time with them. Mavis was a kind person, full of life, and had a bubbly personality that will be remembered by all who knew and loved her. She was a homemaker all her life, caring for her family as they grew and started families of their own. She drove a pilot car for Gus Construction out of Casey, IA.
