Kathleen Hodgson was born in Kamloops, the youngest of ten children.  She graduated from the Royal Inland Hospital in 1929, where she worked in the OR until 1938.  After her marriage in 1938 she did mainly on-call work, although in 1941 she set up an emergency hospital at a local school for war-time preparedness.  She lived past a hundred.

She recalls that the notorious train robber, Bill Miner, had dinner at their home one night.  He “helped with the dishes and chores and behaved like a gentleman.”
