She was born in Brooklyn, New York on April 9, 1929, the daughter of Abraham and Anna (Gottesman) Edelman. She grew up in Brooklyn and was a graduate of Brooklyn High School where she met her future husband, Bernard Starr.

Mrs. Starr resided in Commack, Long Island, New York until moving to Keene in 1995.
