In 1977 she earned a B.A. degree from St. Mary-of-the-Woods College in Terre Haute, Indiana, achieving a lifelong goal. She was a former member of Holy Spirit parish and a member of Our Lady of Lourdes parish, where she sang in the choir and was a member of the Altar Society and a Eucharistic minister.
