She was the sixth of ten children and attended elementary school in a two-room school house and graduated from South Summit High School in 1940. She grew up on a farm milking cows, riding horses, stacking hay and daily chores were part her example and legacy to her family.

Her College days at BYU we cut short with the beginning of WWII.
