Educator.

Born at the RM of Cornwallis on 16 February 1900, daughter of W.

From 1936-1937, she went to Scotland as an exchange teacher before continuing her career in the Brandon School Division. She was President of the Brandon University Women’s Club (1943-1944) and Western Manitoba Teachers’ Association (1950-1951). She retired from teaching at Vincent Massey High School in the summer of 1967. She died, unmarried, at Brandon on 24 March 1983.
