Rosalyn was born on March 15, 1941, in Alton, IA to Dick and Roevina (Cleveringa) Van Klompenburg. She grew up on a farm near Alton, IA with her three brothers and two sisters. Rosalyn graduated from Floyd Valley Community High School in 1959.  Following high school she attended the Lutheran School of Nursing in Sioux City, IA; she graduated in 1962.  Rosalyn worked in Sioux City until she was united in marriage with Ronald Wenstrand on September 6, 1963, in Orange City, IA.
