Born on a farm near High Bluff on 5 June 1879, daughter of Selkirk Bannerman (1842-?) and Jean Bannerman (1850-?), she attended Nairn School. By the time of the 1901 Manitoba census, she was working as a teacher and later served as the Principal of Victoria School (1920-1921). She died at Selkirk, unmarried, on 8 March 1970 and was buried at Portage la Prairie.
