Her words... I was born in North Bay, Ontario (1917), and was the second-youngest of eight children. My father worked for the Canadian National Railway.
Whilst in North Bay, my father - who was not a Christian at the time - went for a walk one Sunday morning and stopped to listen to the Salvation Army Open Air (Street) Meeting. An invitation was given by the Officer to attend the morning services. (My father) thought this would be fine, as he had no other plans. As a result, when the invitation was given (during the service) to anyone who wanted to receive Jesus, my father went forward and made a commitment to Christ. He subsequently joined the Salvation Army, as did my mother.
Working for the Railway, my father was transferred to Barrie, where I started school, and later was transferred to Belleville where he continued to worship with the Salvation Army. I continued my education in Belleville, and with the various activities in the Salvation Army.
