The Trethewey family was well-known BC pioneers in logging and mining in the Lower Mainland.  Cora, whose grandmother was the pioneer nurse Mary Ann Trethewey, attended boarding schools in Vancouver and later college in Ontario.  She graduated from the VGH School of Nursing in 1922, and throughout her life combined nursing with travel.  When she died she left $50,000 to the VGH School of Nursing Alumni Association to provide short-term assistance for VGH graduates who have limited income or are in financial need.
