Born at Melita on 6 June 1915, the youngest of four children of Charles and Hannah Dance, the family moved to Norwood in 1922. Upon graduation from the Central Normal School in 1933 she taught in rural schools for eight years: Inglis School, Westbourne School, Portage la Prairie, and Benito School. After teaching at Tuxedo School from 1941 to 1947, she began a lengthy career with the Winnipeg School Division.
