Immediately following graduation, she married Frank Gaylord Cook of Cambridge (Harvard '88), a lawyer. She was devoted to the Congregational Church, and served on many of its Women's Boards.

She traveled extensively particularly to Europe but also made two trips around the world, during which she visited every woman's college in Japan, China and India.
