Born in Wilmington, DE to the late Anthony & Sophia Jezyk, she attended St. Hedwig and St. Elizabeth Schools and later attended Wilmington High School. She was employed, during WWII, as a welder for Dravo, building landing crafts. She later became a seamstress for Norm Brothers making sails.

In their later years, she and Larry moved to Lewes, DE to care for their family business fulltime, that they started back in 1962.

She was an avid Civil War buff and gardener. She enjoyed sewing, crafts and crocheting. Traveling was also something she and her husband enjoyed together, visiting Soviet Blocked Countries such as Poland, in her early years and eventually seeing most of Western Europe. In her later travels, she visited Costa Rico where she in her mid 70's went sail fishing, hiking mountain trails and forging rivers. Her favorite destination of all was Tahiti.
