Born at Gregg on 20 July 1900, daughter of George Arthur Edwards (1862-?) and Angelina McRae (1870-?), she completed her grade 12, followed by Bible School, then acquired her teaching certificate. She taught at various rural schools around Manitoba, including Margaret Hayworth School (1940-1941) and was a teacher (?-1951) in the Central St. Paul School District and Principal (1951-1952) of the newly-built East St. Paul School, later concluding her career in East Kildonan.
