I was born and raised in Lovington, IL, studied at the University of Illinois for four years. I worked in community and long term care programs for the elderly in Illinois for more than thirty years and continue to live in Lovington, IL.

I studied occupational therapy and therapeutic recreation at the University of Illinois 1955 to 1959; Gerontology at Eastern Illinois University in 1973 and Activity Coordination at Youngstown State University in 1990. I worked in community and long term care programs for the elderly for thirty years and retired to care for my mother in Lovington, IL.
