She grew up in Burbank, California and graduated Burbank High School class of 1954 and remained lifelong friends with many of her classmates. She was a Queen in the Burbank Parade, 1953, sponsored by the Moose Lodge. She pursued a successful career in office management working for several large corporations, eventually meeting her husband of 38 years, Doug.

They were active volunteers with the Palm Springs Historical Society, the Elks Lodge in Palm Springs, VFW in Cathedral City and were involved in other civic and advocacy work. They were a "work hard, play hard" family and loved to travel and take cruises together.
