Born on March 8, 1937, she was the daughter of the late Wesley and Elizabeth Mae Tippett. She married Robert Supko, her husband of 62 years, in 1957.
After graduating from Osceola Mills High School (Philipsburg–Osceola) in 1955, she earned her bachelor’s degree in music education from Penn State University in 1960. She first taught music in the West Branch Area Schools, then in the Clearfield Area Schools at the elementary, junior high, and high school levels. At Clearfield High School, she was an English teacher, the founding director of the show choir, and mentor to many students who qualified for district, state, and national choral competitions.
Together with her husband, she taught round dancing for more than 50 years in both Clearfield and DuBois. They danced in numerous locations throughout the world and spent countless hours with dear friends dancing in their home dance room. For the past 25 years, they also traveled the world, visiting China, Australia, New Zealand, Russia and various countries in Europe.
