Born Nov. 26, 1937 in Washington, DC, she was the daughter of the late Harry Eugene and Mary Anna Bollinger Hughes.

She was a 1955 graduate of New Windsor High School. She was active in 4-H as a member of Sams Creek 4-H and as a co-leader of the Linwood Girls Club.

She also worked with the editors of Woman's Day magazine in Weekend Remodeling and Weekend Decorating creating window treatments in homes in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Long Island and on Maryland's eastern shore. In 1995 she graduated as an interior designer from the Maryland Institute of Art and through Sew Business created award winning window treatments achieving the Award of Excellence in the Window Fashions Magazine competition and Envision Design competition.
