Buddy grew up in Idaho and after her school career at Moscow High School she was working in Spokane, Washington, usually coming home on weekends by train. On one of those train rides, she met her future husband, Linwood Sirman. He was stationed at Fort Lewis in the army. He invited her to have thanksgiving dinner with him at the base and they were married on December 1st of 1944. Soon after they were married the Army transferred him to another base in Alabama. There was no housing there for married couples, so he put her on a train, and she met her new in-laws at the Wilmington Delaware train station. She lived with them until his Army discharge.
She was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary at Post 28, Millsboro, De. She worked for Acme Markets in Georgetown, Delaware for 20 plus years.
