Miss Lela May Aultman, C. S., of Denver, Colorado, was born in Colorado. During her childhood her health was delicate, and one year illness forced her to leave school at midyear and not return. A friend, seeing her need, invited her to visit the Christian Science Sunday School, and she found its teaching so satisfying that she and her family became active Christian Scientists, and her health was restored. She continued her education, received a B.A. degree from Colorado State College of Education, and studied for two additional years at Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

She was for a time employed by The Christian Science Publishing Society in Boston, and while there she served as a teacher in The Mother Church Sunday School.

Miss Aultman became a member of The Mother Church in 1923, and in 1924 she received class instruction from a loyal teacher of Christian Science. In 1925 she entered the full-time public practice of Christian Science in Scarsdale, New York, where she was a member of First Church of Christ, Scientist, and served as Sunday School teacher, First Reader, and on its board of trustees.
