Born in the United States on 24 February 1898, daughter of William Paul Falardeau, the family came to Canada in 1899 and settled on a farm in the Silver Plains area. She taught school in the Winnipeg School Division for over 40 years, including service as the Principal of Florence Nightingale School (1946-1952), Isbister School (1952-1953), and Harrow School (1953-1962). She retired in June 1962. On 21 September 1915, she married railway conductor Andrew John Cockburn McCallum (1869-1919) at Winnipeg. They had one son, Andrew John Colburn McCallum (1917-?) and lived in a home at 130 Morley Avenue prior to her husband’s death. Later in her life, she married Norman Leslie Campbell (1895-1961). She was a member of Westminster United Church and the American Women’s Club. She died at her Winnipeg home on 31 March 1979.
