Born in 1929 in Tetschen, Sudentenland (now the Czech Republic), she made her way over the border into West Germany after the war and there met the love of her life, Tony, at a Wine Fest along the Rhine River. She and Tony married and then immigrated to Canada in the early 1950's where, with much hope, they began a new life and started a family in their adopted country.
