She attended High School of Commerce and graduated in 1960 before attending Eastern Nazarene College for a time. She worked briefly for AT&T in White Plains, NY and later for Reader’s Digest Record Club.

They went on to be stationed at Barbers Point, Hawaii right after their marriage. Their son was born while they were stationed in Hawaii. After Hawaii, they spent time in Millington, TN and Pensacola, FL before being transferred to NAS Chase Field. While stationed in Beeville, they added both daughters to their family. Finally, they were transferred to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba before retiring from the Navy and settling back in Beeville, where they raised their family. She loved the Lord with all her heart.
