Born at Wroxeter, Ontario on 23 June 1892, youngest of eight children of Catherine Hays (1849-1940) and Douglas Fraser (1848-1915), in 1906 the family settled on a farm near Pilot Mound. She completed her primary education then took teacher training at the Manitou Normal School. She taught at several places around the province, including Brandon (1920s), La Riviere School (1931-1943), Brickburn School (?-?), Gunton School (?-?), Pilot Mound School (?-?), and Dunrea School (?-?), serving as the Principal of La Riviere School (1951-1955).
