After the death of both her parents at a younger age, she moved to San Diego, CA where she met and married Keith Getz who was in the U.S. Navy. Following him to Pennsylvania to finish out his enlistment, they then traveled to Columbia, MO where they settled and made a home with his daughter Casey. An avid collector of alligator and cow figurines, she was a much loved wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend.

She leaves behind husband Keith, daughter Casey, brothers Steve (Annie), Donny (Diane)and Bobby and a large extended family spanning from coast to coast.
