Born at Morayshire, Scotland on 26 January 1888, daughter of Thomas Lowe, the family moved to Binscarth when she was a child. She moved to Winnipeg to attend nursing school and, after graduating in 1916, she enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. She worked in the Canadian military hospital at Etaples, France. Wounded when the hospital was bombed on 18 May 1918, she succumbed to her injuries on 28 May 1918 and was buried in the Etaples Military Cemetery.
