Dates of existence



Amy Lauretta Huestis Bamford (1 Jan. 1893-21 July 1960) was born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, to Lewis Wright Huestis (30 June 1844-1931) and Loreno “Lorraine” Van Iderstine (10 July 1856-18 Jan. 1943). Bamford had three siblings that survived to adulthood, including Helen May Huestis (3 Nov. 1889-17 May 1978), with whom Bamford lived prior to her marriage. Bamford attended Prince of Wales College and Normal School in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, and received a public school teaching license from the PEI Department of Education on 26 May 1911. After serving as a provincial school teacher in Prince Edward Island, Bamford moved to Saskatchewan and received a Third Class Teaching Certificate from the Saskatchewan Department of Education on 23 February 1920. She taught for a time with the Fairbank School District in Sceptre, Saskatchewan, leaving her position in December of 1923. Bamford received a Permanent Second Class Teaching Certificate from the Saskatchewan Department of Education on 7 July 1925, in view of the favourable character of the reports received of her work in the classroom from the inspector of schools. Later, after moving to British Columbia, Bamford was a principal at Sperling Avenue School in Burnaby, until her marriage to William Blackley Stanley Bamford on 26 Dec. 1929 in Vancouver. The couple had at least one son, William Huestis Bamford. Bamford died at Vancouver General Hospital of breast cancer and is buried at Ocean View Burial Park, Burnaby, B.C.
