Mary P. Stetson was born on June 6, 1930, to Francis and Lavern Farrell in Fargo, N.D. She was raised in Casselton N.D. and graduated from Lincoln High School in 1948.

They traveled together and were stationed at Wiesbaden AB, Germany (twice), Massachusetts, and Nebraska until their separation in 1969 and ultimate divorce in 1972.
