Educator, nurse.

Born at Brandon on 25 March 1894, daughter of David Wilson Beaubier and Lucy Ellen Horner (1871-1962), in her youth she was a member of the Girls Auxiliary of St. Matthews Anglican Church, Mardi Club of the Red Cross, and the Teck Chapter of IODE. She studied Domestic Science at the Manitoba Agricultural College then received a BA degree from Brandon College (1917). In the summer of 1918, she began teaching at a school in Tribune, Saskatchewan. When the flu pandemic broke out there, she worked as a volunteer nurse until she became ill herself. She died at Tribune on 5 November 1918 and was buried in the Brandon Cemetery. In 1925, the Saskatchewan village of Sonnenfeldt was renamed Beaubier in her honour.
