May met her husband, Bill, while working for the same company in Boston in the 1940s. They married in Medway on May 11th, 1951. May and Bill lived in Franklin and Quincy before settling in Braintree in 1959. They had 2 daughters, Ginny (Sleep) Krot of Braintree and Cindy (Sleep) McCeney of Alexandria, Virginia.
