    Her nineteen month old daughter Angela was killed by a tractor in a farming accident (1975).
    The pastor she had the affair with was physically abusive.
    When her husband Jonas decided to become a marriage and family counsellor and offer his services for free, she agreed to financially support him: ‘You’ve stayed with me despite all that I’ve done. So do what you want to do, and I’ll go to work.’
