She was born on August 16, 1944. She grew up in Englewood Colorado with her parents and brothers. She met the love of her life, James “Jim” Mitchell, in 1948 at the age of 3. They lived across the street from each other. She graduated from Englewood high school in 1962. After high school she worked as a secretary for the Bureau of Mines. She married Jim in 1967. Jim had been in the Navy and they spent some time in Bremerton, WA together after they married. They had two daughters and in 1976 built a home in Parker, Colorado where she enjoyed being a homemaker spending time with her family, friends and horseback riding. She was also very involved in her church that she attended since she was 12, when she made the decision to follow Jesus. In 2003 she and Jim left Parker and moved to Littleton, Colorado where they have resided ever since.
