Adeline LaVerna Buechler, the daughter of Gottleib and Adella (Heibel) Schmeichel, was born on March 31, 1931 on her family farm near Dolton, SD. She spent her childhood years in Salem, SD where she attended Grant School District #3-15 country school. In later years Adeline attended Northwest Iowa Technical College and Iowa Lakes Community College.
