Following high school she attended Morton Junior College and the University of Illinois. Upon graduation from college she worked at Marshall Field and Company and later Arthur Anderson and Company.

She also volunteered at Scottsdale Memorial Hospital, for the Phoenix Public library through their friends program and later at the Beatitudes where she resided. She enjoyed doing needlepoint and counted cross stitch. A long time music lover, she had season tickets to the Phoenix Opera and the Phoenix Symphony.
