I would suggest you do a direct rollover to a place like Fidelity or Vanguard. Just call them at 1-800 -FIDELITY or 1-800-Vanguard, explain your situation, and they will handle the rollover directly– you do NOT take a check! They will also give you some advice about which mutual fund(s) to invest in, depending on your age and your openness to risk.
And since your husband is no longer covered by a workplace retirement plan, he should set up a new IRA at the same time for current years. And what about you???
