She was born in Brooklyn, New York on March 29, 1924, daughter of Dr. Charles and Minerva Patrick Weiss. She graduated from the Packer Collegiate Institute and received her BA from Wellesley College in 1944. She also attended the Katherine Gibbs School in New York City.

Her days were filled with volunteering. She enjoyed working at the Midcoast Hospital, the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, the Susan Dwight Bliss Room of the Bowdoin Library, and the Curtis Memorial Library. She devoted many hours over many years to the Maine State Music Theater, because of her love for the arts. She also enjoyed taking classes at the Senior College in whatever free time remained.
