She was born on September 10, 1926, in Los Angeles to Spencer Hargreaves Clarke and Helen Marie Larkin. She was raised in the pre-war rural San Fernando Valley, where she had a wonderful childhood and enjoyed riding her horse, Lady (a gift from Montie Montana) through the alfalfa fields and trails. She attended Flintridge Sacred Heart and graduated from Van Nuys High School. A Trojan through and through, she was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority and a leader in student activities throughout her school years.

She was Fred's #1 fan and loved his banjo music. She always remained close to friends dating back to her high school and USC days and also continued to gather friends along her life's journey. She lived life one day at a time, was grateful for her many blessings and made sure her family and those around her knew they were loved. A 54-year resident of San Marino, for 38 years Ada was a successful Realtor with The William Wilson Company, founded in Pasadena in 1887. She prided herself in representing her real estate clients' transactions with a strong sense of ethics and morality.
