In 1960 they moved to Albuquerque where they opened their ballet and theatre school. She said "Bill helped give me the confidence that I could make a living at dance instruction." They combined their talents to teach dance and theatre to children ages 6 through high school. They gave yearly recitals featuring ballet and other types of dance, acting and pantomime for 30 years. Lucy taught hundreds of children in Albuquerque over the years and is also known for helping Albuquerque Children's Theatre keep going after her husband Bill died in 1989. She was given an honorary seat at the Albuquerque Little Theatre for her contribution. Despite her busy schedule she also volunteered for Meals on Wheels as a member of Monte Vista Christian Church and Anna Kaseman hospital for several years.

This is to no one's surprise because Rich had such a kind heart, outgoing personality, dedication to his sports; and he constantly mixed humor and wit with everything he did. Rich had such a positive impact on so many people, and everyone who knew him was his friend. Not a minute of the day goes by that we don't miss him and think of him. Rich, We Love You and We Will Carry Your Spirit With Us Always! FOREVER #55
