She was born on November 25, 1926 in Lyman Wyoming the 8th of nine children, brothers Ray, Kent, Leonard, Ivar and sisters Nina, Rebecca, Nedra and Dorthy to her parents Ray and Bessie Blackner.

She sang with the Musettes, played the flute and the piano and served for years as the chorister in her ward. She served in many church callings. A favorite was cub scout leader. She loved to take the boys on outings up Hobble Creek. She was at home in the outdoors whether golfing, camping with her friends from Brookside, with the family at Bear Lake or Fish Lake she was truly in her element. She taught her children to enjoy the beauties of nature, a crisp fall day, new fallen snow, the flowers of spring. She always had a smile to lift the spirits of those around her. She treated each day of life as a precious gift. She never let a sunset go unappreciated. She was creative, kind and generous with her time and talents.
