She was born on December 28, 1925, the daughter of Ellison and Gertrude (Haggett) Ring and grew up in Franklin. She was a graduate of Franklin High School, class of 1944 and New Hampshire School of Accounting and Finance class of 1945 (now Southern New Hampshire University). After graduation she was asked by the owner of the college, Harry A.B. Shapiro to be his full-time secretary. She continued to be employed by the college in many capacities and was the Applications Coordinator when she retired after 47 ½ years.
