Her dad was in the military serving in the US Army and she moved with her family to live in several different locations throughout her childhood. She was a 1982 graduate of a Georgia High School. She was employed as a secretary at Frontier School for eight years. Her favorite thing to do was “going fishing with my ‘honey man’ (husband),” as she was often heard to say. She also loved taking care of her grandsons.

The couple were married August 16, 1986, in Ponca City, and were wed for 33 years. They established their home near Red Rock. They are the parents of two sons: Devin Ratliff and his wife Ashley, Cashion, Oklahoma, and Dustin Ratliff and his wife Stephani, Red Rock, Oklahoma. They have five grandchildren.
