Born in 1940 in Wilkes-Barre, PA she was the daughter of the late Francis and Angela (Stachowicz) Wojcik. An area resident since 1978 she previously resided in Canal Fulton, OH and Levittown, PA.

She passed down the traditions of her Polish heritage, especially a Christmas Eve tradition of making pierogi with her family.
