She and her family moved to St. Petersburg, FL in her early teenage years. She graduated from St. Petersburg High School with the class of 1961 where she was a cheerleader and was voted “Most Friendly” by her high school class.

After living in St. Petersburg, FL for most of her life, she moved to Maggie Valley, NC in 2005.
