Her parents divorced early on, each remarried. Her mother to Frank Joseph Robinson, having one additional child, Raymond Errol Robinson. Her father was remarried to Elizabeth (Beth). She grew up on Vancouver Island, mainly in the country with her mother and stepfather but also got a taste of city life when spending time with her father and stepmother after a few years of separation.

The family moved to Los Gatos, California in 1961, starting and running their own sign business. They were active members of the Lyons Club, an antique car club and owned a gift store for a short period. She enjoyed copper enameling, sewing, trips to the beach, and time with friends among other activities.
In 1970 they moved to Nevada where the air was cleaner and life calmer.

She was a strong woman who was devoted to her family. She always liked to get in the last word and express her opinions. Over the years she enjoyed square dancing, collecting antique treasures, sewing, quilting, gardening, volunteering and especially reading!
