They immigrated to Canada in 1948 and settled in Saint John, N.B. Asta worked as a social worker for the Family Services Association in Saint John until her retirement. In 1990, she moved to Dartmouth to be close to her daughter Mai's family. She had a keen mind and many diverse interests. She was an avid photographer and her work was displayed at the Kodak Pavilion at Expo '67 and published in the National Film Board's centennial collection of photographs, Canada; A Year of the Land. Asta was a great fan of CBC radio and followed Canadian politics, cultural events and the stock market with equal intensity.

In her later years, her greatest joy was her two granddaughters and she always had time for sewing doll clothes, baking cookies and putting on impromptu plays. She was very proud to have completed her memoirs, a five-year effort, in 2001 with the help of her devoted friend Marie Ayotte.
