Valeria V. Twarowski was born on July 5, 1927 in the Town of Reseburg, rural Thorp, WI, to John and Bernice (Kowieski) Twarowski. She was raised on the family farm and received her education at Thorp area schools. After completing her education, Valeria worked at the Ehlert Cheese Factory for a few years. She then was united in marriage to Emil Kodl on April 26, 1947 at St. Hedwig's Catholic Church in Thorp. In 1950, they bought a farm in the Town of Thorp, which they operated until Emil's death in 1989.
