Born at Winnipeg on 24 December 1929, daughter of William Henry Anderson and Marcelle Louise Roberts (1901-1960), she graduated from Gordon Bell High School in 1948 and studied theatre at Bristol Old Vic in London. In 1955, she starred in the inaugural production at Rainbow Stage and debuted at the Manitoba Theatre Centre in 1960. Subsequently, she appeared over 30 times at Rainbow Stage and 52 times at MTC. In 2017, the Winnipeg Theatre Awards were renamed the Evies in her honour after receiving the organization’s first Lifetime Achievement Award.
