She attended Sedro-Woolley High School, graduating in 1931. On March 23, 1934 she was united in marriage to Ernest Duvall in Bellingham, WA and they made their home at Samish, North of Sedro-Woolley. From 1942 to 1969 she and Ernest made their home in Roseburg, OR where she worked as a housekeeper, and being an accomplished seamstress, she altered and made clothing.
