She was born July 27, 1920, in Enumclaw (Osceola) to the late Harold and Lena (Koidahl) Hanson. She spent her youth in Enumclaw and graduated from Enumclaw High School in 1938. During World War II she lived and worked in Seattle including time with the Army Corp of Engineers.

After the war the couple lived and raised three sons at their home at Four Corners near Maple Valley. In 1961 they moved to a home on Lake Sawyer where she spent the next 50 years of her life. During that time the couple toured the world and spent most winters at their condominium on Maui. She most enjoyed time spent at their Mats Mats Bay farm on the Olympic Peninsula. She was an avid golfer when she was younger and a lifelong gardener who loved her pet donkeys Daisy and Rosie.
