Ilava-Ramsley was born to Silvija Ilava and Joseph Ramsley in 1966. In the late 1980s she worked as a waitress in a restaurant. Frustrated with the way simple workers like her were treated, she started an unofficial workers union in Hurbanova. In 2010, she joined the Labour Party, hoping to finally achieve something for her cause.
She was married to former Prime Minister Rick Frances from 1986 to 1991. Now, she is married to Ward Calvert. With Rick, she has three kids: Ben (born 1986), Helen (1988) and Geoffrey (1989). With Ward, she has one son: Richard Ramsley (born 1975), who is married to Laura Huys.
