Frazee, Gertrude (1884-1980)

Born in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Gertrude Frazee enlisted in the Canadian Army Medical Corps in 1917 and was posted to Liverpool.  She returned to Canada in 1919 and in 1920 enrolled in the first Public Health Nursing diploma course at UBC.  She never married, and a family anecdote suggests her fiancée died in the sinking of the Titanic.

She worked as a nurse in the Vancouver area, much of it with her brother who was a chiropractor in Richmond.  She died in Shaughnessy Hospital.
