She was born December 10, 1919 to Henry and Gunhild (Vegheim) Lovald on the farm ½ mile east of Milroy. After graduating valedictorian of her class, she took legal secretary classes at Minnesota School of Business.

She became a housewife to Roy for 17 years; the last five years caring for him as his health failed.
