      Never married.
      Was known to her nieces and nephews as Aunt Key.

      Quoted from Alberta School of Agriculture, Golden Echoes 1913 -1963.

      It is with pleasure and somewhat a feeling of nostalgia that I write a f ew words concerning my association with the Alberta Schools of Agricultur e. In 1920, Mr. Marshall opened three additional schools at Gleichen, Raym ond and Youngstown. Accordingly, Mr. Meyer the Superintendent of the Schoo ls, was looking for staff and that simmer wrote to me at my Ontario hom e, asking if I would care to apply for a Home Economics position in the De partment of Agriculture. As a result of this correspondence, I was delegat ed to Olds and arrive there in October of that year.

      Little did I think on that far off day that I would be with the Schools f or thirty one years, twenty two at Olds and eleven at Claresholm; and sin ce my retirement I've been at the Vermilion School three summers.

      The students arrived toward the end of October and our winter's work had b egun. When spring came, and the students had gone, we began to prepa re fo school fair work. One of the "jobs" assigned to us was the filli ng of the paper seed bags to be distributed to various schools in our pa rt of the province. Then one day we stared out on the old Ford on our safa ri armed with the said seeds, Mr. Holston's red box carrying the rope f or the knot instruction and other teaching aids. In July we had the sho rt courses at the schools and in September we were back at the fair wor k. I remember a tome when Mr. Malyon "found the spring in the fall" when s earching for water to replace the leakage from the radiator. In spite of d elays because of bad roads and all that entails we managed to have a l ot of fun through the years.

      I must not leave out my work with the Women's Institute, the United Farm W omen and other organizations. I think I have visited almost every to wn in Alberta. I in turn haver learned a lot from the Alberta women, I ha ve enjoyed the Extenstion work as well as the work at the School. It has b een rich rewarding - so many friendships with such fine people, and so ma ny different and interesting experiences! I'm glad I came to Alberta.
