Born in Reading, she was a daughter of the late C. LeRoy and Miriam R. (Ganter) Ebersole.

There are four grandchildren: Aaron Michael, Deanna Barry, Aubree Shanaman, and Bryce Boyer, and four great-grandchildren: Zachary, Paige, Brooke, and Quinn.

She was predeceased by one son, Joseph Tilden and one sister, Miriam R. Ryan.
