Her childhood home was in Zullinger, PA, and she graduated from Washington Township High School in 1938. She married Norman W. Sollenberger on January 25, 1941. They worked as a team on Norlo Farm, now Norlo Park; at New Guilford Brethren in Christ Church, in many different capacities; in numerous dairy organizations; and in parenting their five children.
