Evelyn Mae Tooker was born on August 8, 1926, near Merrill, Iowa, the daughter of Harold and Leona (Marx) Tooker. She attended and graduated from Liberty High School, rural Merrill, in 1944. While in high school, Evelyn enjoyed performing in school plays and playing basketball.

On August 8, 1944, Evelyn and Walter “Buck” Pratt were married. Together they had three children. Evelyn and Walter made their home on a farm west of Merrill and later moved to Sioux City, Iowa.
