Her mother died when she was 13 and her father died when she was 16. She attended and graduated from Sacred Heart Academy, a Catholic boarding school in Baltimore, MD. While visiting her older sister, who was married to a US Army officer in the Philippines, she met another US Army officer, eight years her senior, and married him there in 1924. Together they raised three boys while spending the next almost twenty years in the peace time army, being stationed in Virginia, the Territory of Hawaii, Wyoming, Arizona, Puerto Rico, and South Carolina. When the United States entered World War II, they moved to Alabama and shortly thereafter, her husband was stationed in England. During the years of World War II, she did volunteer work for the American Red Cross, while seeing her two oldest sons enter the military. About ten years after the death of her husband, she relocated from Alabama to Maryland, then to Florida, and finally in 1966, to Washington, DC where she lived in the Army Distaff Hall, where her two sisters were already living, until her death in 1998.
