Lyla Lorraine was born on September 5, 1931, to Henry and Henrietta (Rasmussen) Leuze in Willmar, Minnesota. She grew up on the farm with her two sisters and brother.

She met the love of her life at the Lakeside Ballroom in Glenwood at a dance. Lyla married Donald Rosenberg on June 15, 1967. The couple moved to the Rosenberg family farm where they raised their two sons and milked cows.
