      In about, 1926, her Uncle from Saskatchewan, Jack Renwick his wife Nellie and children Jean and Lorne, visited with his family.

      On their return to Saskatchewan, Mary went with them and commenced work as a secretary in the Forest Office in Indian Head and stayed there for 4 years..

      She met her future husband, Fraser, who had just graduated from the University of Sask, and was articling as a student in a Chartered Accountants firm.
