Little is known about her youth. She had four sisters, Maggie, Ida, Alta Lee, Clara, and four brothers, Roy, Elmer, John, and Alvin. The family farmed and were living near Atoka, Oklahoma when Novella met William Harve Reddell. 

Tragedy struck the family twice. Maggie, standing next to Comodore in the above photo, died during an operation. Comodore was killed in an auto accident in 1914. His son-on-law was driving and was never forgiven by many members of the family.
