Her siblings are JaNeal Levorsen, Garland Kennington, Edd Kennington (deceased), Barbara Kennington and Jody Kennington. She always loved Star Valley, Wyoming and spent many summers there with her children but her Rheumatoid Arthritis made Arizona a more comfortable place for her for the remainder of each year. Professionally she obtained a master’s degree in Special Education from Arizona State University. She then taught Special Education classes in public schools. She stopped teaching in schools when her children were born but continued teaching special needs children in various church positions. She also worked for years as the Ward Compassionate Service Leader, and served others for many years after she was released from that calling. Although unable to attend church meetings for the past few years due to health conditions; she remained faithful to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
