As a small child, she moved with her family to Swansea, Massachusetts, where she grew up and graduated from high School. After high school, she attended Scripts Business College in Providence, Rhode Island and became a legal secretary. After working as a secretary for some years, she trained to become a court reporter - a job she loved and worked in for many years. She had two children - Joe E. Martin Jr. and Deborah Coyne Martin- by her first husband. At this time the family was living in El Paso, Texas. In 1969, she met and married William Afton Cardon Jr., with whom she had two children - Dawn Cardon Terrill and Shon Benjamin Cardon.
