She graduated from Muskegon High School and attended the University of Michigan where she studied elementary education. She loved teaching pre-school and kindergarten in Muskegon. After moving to the Kalamazoo area, she worked as a Medical Records Secretary for the Kalamazoo Psychiatric Hospital, a position from which she retired.
