More information

Dewhurst was born in Montreal, Quebec, the only child of Ferdinand Augustus "Fred" Dewhurst, owner of a chain of confectionery stores, and Frances Marie (née Woods) Dewhurst, a homemaker. Her father had been a "well-known athlete in Canada, where he had played football with the Ottawa Rough Riders". However, he and his wife and daughter naturalized as U.S. citizens before 1940. Colleen's mother was a practitioner of Christian Science, which her daughter would also adopt.

The Dewhursts moved to Massachusetts in 1928 or 1929, staying in Boston, Dorchester, Auburndale, and West Newton. Later they moved to New York City, and then Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin. She graduated from Riverside High School in Whitefish Bay in 1942, and it was around this time that her parents separated. Dewhurst went on to attend Milwaukee-Downer College.
