She lived most of her 93 years in Chadron, Nebraska where she was born. From age 15, until she graduated from Chadron High School in 1938, she was an usherette and cashier at the former Pace Theater. After high school she moved to Seattle and worked at the Golden Rule Bakery. She returned to Chadron, and in 1942 she married Franklin Christensen. For many years they lived on a ranch north of Chadron. She worked at the Safeway, Chadron State College, and the Pine Ridge Job Corps from which she retired at age 75.
