LuAnn spent a happy childhood with her 4 brothers and 5 sisters in Kanab, UT, where her father and mother had established the state's first dry cleaning business.
She met Michael Leo Kenney in Salt Lake City. The couple married on January 23, 1947, and had three children. They lived in Salt Lake City, UT, Reno, NV and Hayward, CA. Husband Michael died in 1983.
