Originally from Arkansas, Standish was serving the in U.S. Navy and stationed at Newport, Rhode Island. At the age of seventeen Lorraine quit high school and married Standish in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, on December 6, 1954.

The couple moved to Arkansas where Myles attended the University of Arkansas and she completed beauty school. By 1958 Myles had completed an engineering degree and accepted a position with NASA in Huntsville, Alabama. During the next two years the couple had two children, Renee and Linda.

Throughout Myles’s career as an engineer, Lorraine worked as a free-lance writer and taught at several elementary schools.
