Marva was born on February 14th,1944 to John Ladd and Martha Miller in Mountain Home, Idaho. Marva was the oldest child out of 5. Marva had scarlet fever as a little girl which had an impact on her but never let it consume her. Marva attended school in Mountain Home where she was fond of one teacher because she gave her the best gift that she could ask for which was to read. Marva could spend hours talking about her fondness of reading. She loved hanging out with her sister Bev, they were very close. She also loved playing pranks on her family.
When Marva was 19, she moved to Emmett, Idaho where she met Joe Patterson got married and had two beautiful daughters.
