Dates of existence



Helen Cook (Law) was born in 1908 in Phoenix, British Columbia, a now-historic gold mining ghost town between Midway and Grand Forks, and later moved to North Vancouver. She worked at St. George’s School and North Vancouver High School before attending UBC for one year (1926-27), where she was a member of the women’s grass hockey team. She then transferred to the Provincial Normal School in Victoria to earn her teaching certificate. She married James Law, and they moved to a farm on Quadra Island, B.C., to Port Alberni. Their son James earned an agricultural science degree from UBC and became a science teacher. Their daughter Barbara attended Normal School like her mother and became a teacher. Helen Law died in Burnaby in 1986.
