Edwin and Rose settled about 5 miles south of the homestead of Edwin's parents in southwestern Manitoba, Canada, and began farming there. This farm is still owned by Russell Gordon Kontzie, a grandson of Edwin and Rose.

Edwin and Rose retired to the nearby Village of Waskada in 1947. Edwin purchased two lots on the newly developed west side of Waskada, which was later lived on by one of their sons, Gordon John Kontzie with his second wife, Rita. Rose purchased another lot in Waskada in 1950, later lived on by another of the their sons with his wife, Orval Frederick Kontzie and Jessie (Hainsworth). Rose died in the nursing home of the neighbouring town of Deloraine in 1985, shortly after her 98th birthday.
