She graduated from Richmond Beach High School in 1937 and married Kenneth Bergquist in 1938. She never worked outside the home but was active in many civic groups including the Girl Scouts and Orthopedic Guild. She loved sewing, camping and fishing with Kenneth and caught her share. Kenneth always told her she was the “catch of his life”.
