She was born Feb. 8, 1936, in Chicago, Illinois, the daughter of Bruce Raymond and Anna Marie Hohn Jagor.

She graduated from the St. Scholastica Academy in Chicago in 1953. Following graduation, she attended Iowa State University in Ames. On July 7, 1956, in Chicago, she married Bruce David Rosenquist. They were married 55 years.
