She was raised in a family of five, with one older brother, Gordan, and three younger brothers: Doug, Ralph, and Ivo. She lived most of her life in Richfield, Utah and graduated from Richfield High School in the class of 1961. At the time she was the first class to finish in a new Richfield High School. She attended Southern Utah State College (now known as SUU) and later graduated from Utah State University with a degree in elementary education. Shortly after college she taught elementary children in Salt Lake City and Vernal Utah.
