She financed the tomb at Black Point Cemetery and established a trust fund to provided perpetual care for the cemetery.

Her greatest legacy was the establishment of the Kaler Vaill Home, a retirement home for up to fifteen women.

After her death in 1957, her residence at 382 Black Point Road was expanded and the Kaler Vaill Memorial home opened in 1960.
