On April 5, 1917, on a farm near Bremer, Iowa, a 10 lb. baby girl was born to Arthur Clayton and Lydia Amelia (Racker) Epley. At an early age she was taken to Warren Evangelical Church where she learned to love her Lord Jesus Christ. From age 5 she walked about a mile to a one room school. After graduation from Waverly High School in 1935, she taught in a rural school for three years for a salary of $45 each month. She next attended Wartburg College, Moody Bible Institute and Western Union College receiving a BA degree in 1942. She taught 3rd grade in Boxholm.
