She grew up in the Provo area. Following high school she attended BYU and then taught school in Kamas, Utah for five years. She was then called on a mission to Texas-Louisiana.

She kept busy raising her young family, serving in the church, and baking delicious homemade bread. In 1966 she was asked to teach half day kindergarten.
