Born at Ochre River on 28 May 1929, the youngest child of Danish immigrants Vilhelm and Camilla Storgaard, she was educated at the University of Manitoba (BSA, MSc) and Pennsylvania State University (PhD), then returned to the University of Manitoba to teach in the Plant Sciences Department, specializing in forage crops. She received the Olive B. Stanton Award as Teacher of the Year at the University (1971), the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Medal (1977), and the Canadian Society of Agronomy Teaching Award (1984). She was chosen three times for the Citizen Ambassador Program, including trips to Russia, Australia/New Zealand, and South America. She died at Winnipeg on 11 March 2007.
