Jo Ann Kodet was born on June 24, 1948 to Emil and Rosella (Bartes) Kodet in Redwood Falls, MN. She was baptized and confirmed in St. John's Catholic Church in Morton, MN. She attended school in Morton and graduated in 1966. She went on to attend the Minnesota School of Business in Minneapolis. During these years, she worked at the Foshay Tower in Minneapolis.

On September 21, 1968, Joann was united in marriage to David Holland at the Assumption Catholic Church in Barnesville, MN.
