Born Sept. 12, 1907, in Brookville, she graduated from Brookville High School and entered the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago at age 16. There she pursued the study of music, graduating in 1926. That year she married Milford Walter Castrodale.

In 1928, they went to the Philippine Islands where they both taught in the Doane Bible Institute, of which he was director. Following their return from the Philippines, she was an active participant in her husband's Presbyterian pastorates in Nickleville, Franklin, Edinboro, Rochester, Philadelphia and West Grove until retirement in 1964.
