A proud Oklahoman, Datha was born in Tulsa on December 28, 1926. After high school graduation Datha attended the Blackwood Davis Business College and immediately went to work for the Oklahoma State Department of Agriculture. She later worked for the Payne County Extension Service in Stillwater and happily supported many 4-H members and families.
After retiring Datha enjoyed playing golf, bridge, and traveling to visit many sites in the United States. She particularly liked visiting her daughters in their state-side and out-of-country homes, as well as going to the beautiful Colorado mountains and the sunny Florida beaches.
Datha was a Stillwater resident for nearly 70 years and a loyal advocate and fan of Oklahoma State University. She proudly attended college football and basketball games, cheering the teams on to victory while always wearing the proper orange OSU shirt.
Datha was an avid member of the Stillwater First United Methodist Church where she served on multiple committees to help others.
