She attended Mount Vernon Academy where she would make lasting friendships and meet some of her favorite people.


She joined the Army where she trained and became a radio operator and became a sharp-shooter.
She went to Andrews University where she started taking nursing classes and making friends that would help her in good times and bad. Who continued to stay in touch in her last days.


She continued her studies at Southwestern Michigan College, but was unable to finish due to family circumstances. It was always a dream of hers to finish college.
