Patricia was born December 2, 1930 in Austin, Texas to Marion and Ruth (Tollefson) Raney. She was raised and educated at Horton, Kansas. After graduation, she attended Chillicothe Business College in Chillicothe, Missouri where she met her future husband, Ron Peters. The couple would have celebrated their 70th Wedding Anniversary in 2019. From this union, three children were born: Sandra, Steven, and Sylvia.
