She served as President of the Canadian Women’s Press Club (1908-1909) and President of the Winnipeg Branch of the Canadian Women’s Press Club (1910-1911).

On 17 April 1907, she married grain merchant R. C. Osborne. She was a member of the Women’s Canadian Club, Winnipeg Golf Club, St. Charles Country Club, and Anglican Church. In 1916, she lived at 128 Yales Avenue, Winnipeg.
