She met her husband, William, in San Antonio, TX,
when she attended a free class at Arthur Murray’s Dance Studio.
William was in the Air Force and working part-time as a dance instructor.
William saw she had rhythm and the rest is history!
They kept the beat going for 64 happy years celebrating

Later in life she went back to school and became a RN, just like her mother.
