Nona graduated from Odessa High School, and later started working in a hospital as a medical secretary where she excelled due to her proficiency with details and organization.

Though she grew up in a loving Christian household, Nona struggled with her physical and mental health. She had her personal struggles in life along with health issues that allowed her heart to open to the Lord Jesus and it changed her life.
She was a faithful member of Landmark Baptist Church since 2012. There she sang in the choir and always sat in the Amen Corner. She loved to do home visits with the church and participated in other outreach ministries including Vacation Bible School.
