She graduated from the Academy of Providence in Newport, KY, then earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Villa Madonna College (now Thomas More University) and a Masters of Education degree from the University of Cincinnati. In 1953 she met the love of her life, Robert L. Hengehold, a fellow student at Villa Madonna College. They were married in 1961 and moved to Dayton, OH, where they created a truly wonderful, joyous life together. Devoted to one another for over 65 years, they raised two lovely daughters, Laura and Jennifer, who were their mother’s pride and joy.

Through her career, she taught professionally at St. Bernard’s Elementary School in Dayton, KY, St. Pius X School in Edgewood, KY, Vine Street School in Cincinnati, OH, and Grafton Kennedy School in Northridge, OH.
