She graduated from Slaton High School and attended West Texas State University in Canyon, Texas where she received a B.A. in Speech and Theater and completed her coursework for a Master’s degree. She met her husband, Chris Spence, while working at the historic TEXAS Outdoor Musical that has been running annually for 53 years in the Amphitheater at Palo Duro Canyon State Park. She married Chris on August 17, 1975 in Slaton, and they celebrated the birth of their son David four years later. She devoted her time to raising her young son and taking care of her family. They moved to Georgetown, Texas in 1989. Her love for the theater led her to participate in and direct many shows in Georgetown at St. John’s United Methodist Church, the Palace Theater, and the Page House.
