She was born in Winnipeg Manitoba on June 8, 1938. Her family moved to Toronto Ontario where she later graduated from the Toronto General Hospital as a Registered Nurse with a BSN.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of the staff of the Wrinch Memorial Hospital, to Dr. Pichie, Dr. Said, and Dr. Ngai, for the excellent care the she received while in hospital.
