Carmen was born on July 6, 1941 in San Antonio, Texas to Salomon and Elodia Muro. She graduated from Tech High School in San Antonio in 1959 and later graduated from The Art Institute of Dallas where she majored in videography and media studies. Carmen lived in Texas, California and Wisconsin during her early years. Her children remember her as a kind, gentle, patient, and driven mother who encouraged them to pursue their goals in life.
