Averle was born August 3, 1925 in Andrew, Iowa, daughter of William and Clara (Deppe) Hager. She attended the Maquoketa schools and graduated in 1943. She was employed that summer by the Davenport Newspapers as correspondent and circulation manager for the Jackson County Area.

Selling her businesses in 1980, she took many trips visiting her son Gary in California and Greg in Australia. In 1993 she was hired as Administrative Assistant at the Dubuque Water Plant and worked until she was 78 years old. Since then, she has enjoyed traveling, social events with her friends, her home in Dubuque, and was an avid shopper with her best friend, Thelma.
