Born at Windsor, Nova Scotia, she moved to Virden as a child and grew up in Winnipeg. She attended Rupert’s Land School for Girls and graduated from the University of Manitoba with a degree in Home Economics. She married Donald B. Proctor in 1946 and spent the next four years in Toronto while he earned his DDS. They returned to Winnipeg during the flood of 1950. After many years of community service (Junior League, Children’s Theatre, St. George’s Church), she entered the work force as a library technician at Laidlaw School, retiring in 1990. She died at Winnipeg on 10 February 2009.
