As a young girl, she moved to San Jose, California where she went to school and later met the love of her life and husband for 64 years, Joe Bob Adams. She always laughed and said Joe came to California from Arkansas for gold and that she was his gold nugget. They married on October 16, 1954, in Reno, Nevada. They had 4 children, Peggy, Timothy, Thomas, and Joseph.

She loved to paint, crochet, take her grandchildren to the Ice Capades and enter items she had made into the Cleveland County Free Fair.
