She spent her youth as a farm kid, and graduated from Fairfield High School in 1956. She was baptized, confirmed, and married at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Glenvil, NE. She attended Hastings College for two years, before moving to Denver, CO. She met John Platt from Ft. Pierce, FL while he was stationed at Lowry Air Force Base in Denver.
