In early 1960, she met George Kummer in Germany through a mutual friend. George was serving in the United States Air Force.  On December 9, 1962, Sigrid and George married while he was based in Spokane, Washington.

Sigrid, George and their son, Eric relocated to New York following George’s honorable military discharge, settling down near George’s family and have lived in the Westchester County area for many decades.  Sigrid became a naturalized United States citizen on June 19, 1970 at the Putnam County Supreme Court.
