She spent her childhood in the Houston, MS area graduating from Houston MS High School. She then attended the University of Mississippi until the start of WWII when she returned home and met and married Theodore G. Huffman. During WWI they lived in a number of states while he served in the Army Air Corps including Florida and Texas. After WWII they moved to Jackson, MS and soon thereafter to Oxford, MS where she obtained her B.A. in Elementary Education while T.G. was serving during the Korean War. They then moved back to Jackson, MS where she taught in the Jackson Public Schools and St. Andrews Day School for more than 30 years. During that time she received her Masters Degree in Counseling and School Administration from Mississippi College.
