Educator.

Born in Rat Portage [Kenora], Ontario on 20 September 1900, daughter of Thomas Russ Deacon and Lily Dingman (1871-1945), her family moved to Winnipeg around 1902. She graduated from Ohio’s Oberlin College then worked for the Winnipeg School Division as Principal of the Ellen Street Kindergarten (1922-1928), after which she married Gordon Leslie Jamieson (?-?) at Young United Church on 21 April 1928. The couple had at least two children, Gordon Thomas Jamieson (b 1938) and Nancy Jamieson, and resided locally, initially at the Lucerne Apartments. In 1934, they moved to Toronto, Ontario and were living there at the time of her father’s death in 1955. Her later whereabouts are unknown.
