Born on 2 February 1877, she was brought to Winnipeg at a young age by her father, electrician James Yuill. After teaching at Gretna Public School in 1898, she joined the teaching staff of the Winnipeg School Board later that year and taught in several school before transferring to Fort Rouge School, where she served for many years as Principal. From there, she took charge of Carlton School, soon before it was purchased by the T. Eaton Company and demolished. She, along with the staff and students of the school, moved to Alexandra School. She retired in 1935, due to ill health, and died at Winnipeg on 26 January 1938.
