She was born in Holyoke, to Frederick and Rhea (Duval) Piquette of Willimansett, Chicopee. She was a 1954 graduate of Chicopee High School. A full time mom, raising six children for over 20 years, she was later employed in the lab at Providence Hospital, and then at Life Labs in Mercy Hospital, where she retired from in 2002.
