Mrs. Hooker was raised and educated in Metuchen (Middlesex County), N.J. She was a graduate of Metuchen High School and Drake College, class of 1962.

In 1988 Mrs. Hooker married Mr. Carl Hooker and became the proud step-mother of son Patrick. Mrs. Hooker was energetic, vibrant and fun-loving, always full of life.
