Name of creator
Charlotte was born in Weyburn, Saskatchewan in 1921. She attended St. Paul’s School of Nursing from 1944-1947, where she took general training at St. Paul’s, psychiatric training at Essendale Psychiatric Hospital and communicable diseases at Vancouver General Hospital. She was valedictorian for her 1947 class, but having nursed tubercular patients became tubercular and needed a year to recover.
After nursing briefly with the Victorian Order of Nurses and St. Paul’s case room and eyes, ear, nose and throat departments, she moved with her husband to Ottawa. Here she did General Nursing at Ottawa Civic Hospital, the Royal Ottawa Psychiatric Hospital and the Ottawa General. After raising six children, she rewrote her registered nursing exams and worked as a private duty nurse during the Aids outbreak. She retired at seventy, moved back to Vancouver, and now lives in a retirement home “where all my needs are met”.
“I bask in my memories of being part of a profession that cares for those in need.”
