Born in Winchester, NH on April 6, 1937, she was the daughter of the late Chester Joseph Grenda and Vargit (Poreda) Grenda. She graduated from Winchester’s Thayer High School in 1955 where she served as class secretary, played girls basketball, cheerleader for boys basketball, played alto saxophone in the band and became the Drum Majorette.
