She was raised in Spencer where she attended school until the 11th grade and then finished and graduated from Spirit Lake High School.
She started working at Little Hands Daycare for a short time and then went to work for Joyful Journey’s Preschool. She loved her jobs with the children.

Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
But still miraculously
for a single minute….
You grew not under
my heart……but in it.
