Mazie and Bunny married in 10-6-1952. Mazie had a son, Earl Francis Bernard whom was adopted by Bunny and soon became Earl McGee born 6-7-1950. Soon after marriage Bunny, who was a merchant marine stopped shipping out and family life began to grow with the addition of daughter Melissa Ann McGee 12-27-1953. Bunny began to provide for his family as a house builder in the construction trade and soon two more children were added to the family, Kathleen Marie McGee 7-29-1955 and Troy Allen McGee 10-11-1956. Bunny began to acquire a demand for his talents as a builder and soon added carpenter to his many talents. Mazie was a mother and homemaker until the children ranged in age from 16 to 10 when the family began to work hail storms, when Mazie became mom, wife and office assistance. Bunny was a free lancer working with insurance adjusters to repair roofs. This entailed learning bookkeeping and office skills for Mazie who stepped up to the task and they became a team that would last 43 years until the death of Bunny in August 1995.

Bunny's health had not kept him down. He suffered a stroke in 1987 and lost his speech and use of his right side. After the family educated themselves and helped him with his speech and physical therapy he began to seek other jobs he could. He and Mazie delivered papers in Quail Valley, CA for several years and after acquiring a home with Kathleen in Bullhead City, AZ he continued to do construction work. The concrete work, driveway an cover as well as the shed were built by Bunny with help from family members. The move to Bullhead City geographically located the three to be the between point for Earl and Melissa who had families in CA and AZ. Many Thanksgivings and Christmases were spent celebrating in the home in Bullhead City. There were many travels in between the beginning home and the last home Bunny and Mazie shared. During all the travels they showed the children many of the wondrous sights in the United States. Things like Mount Rushmore and Carlsbad Caverns. Redwood Forest and the Painted Desert. Mazie became an avid rock collector and had many souvenirs from many historical sights. When traveling from one location to another the couple always managed to find a route that held and adventure for the young children. Although there were flush times during the early childhood of the children money was tight but the family never wanted for adventure or fun, even when it was work.
