Born at Mitchel Air Force Base on Long Island, NY, she was the daughter of the late Verel Rollins Blaine, and Mayhue D. Blaine.  She was a graduate of Cheyenne Mountain High School in Colorado Springs, CO, and received a BS in Nursing from the University of Colorado.  She worked as a registered nurse before becoming a mother and homemaker.
