According to Avula's sister Louise Kekenes, Avula was a fan-dancer in the clubs in the twenties.
Avula was the daughter of Malvin Scott Bowersock and Caroline Jane (Hillard) Bowersock. She was born 1907 in Punxatawney, PA. Avula married Angelo Daniel Radice in 1923. Angelo went primarily by his middle name; Daniel, and was the son of Peter Arthur Radice and Adalina (Spinelli) Radice. The young couple never had any children but did travel a lot. Information from the Ellis Island archives shows their trips to Bermuda and Africa. During the 1930 census, Angelo and Avula were living in Arlington, VA with Avula's sister Helena. Angelo worked as a bank teller. Three years later, Avula died in a car accident;
