Lavoie, Hilda Agnes (1924-2017)

Hilda graduated From St. Paul’s in 1945.  She was assigned to the St. Paul’s premature nursery ward, and was one of the first nurses from St. Paul’s to accompany airlift rescues by the RCAF in remote areas of BC.  She recalls the work, though often hindered by primitive conditions, as immensely satisfying.
