She was born in Detroit, Michigan on February 3, 1922, the daughter of Earl Martin and Justine Marie (Gould) Armour and graduated with the Lakeview High School Class of 1940.

She is survived by her children, Norma (Sam) Hostetler, Ross Hoffman, Steve (Donna) Hoffman, and Virginia L. Lawson; 11 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great grandchildren.
