She grew up and attended school at Pryor. She was married to David Keith Flint on Oct. 24, 1975 in Chouteau; they made their home in Chouteau and from their union came two sons, Eric and Kyle. She was a wonderful and giving wife and mother who enjoyed spending time with her family. She loved organizing family get-togethers where she would cook and entertain.
