Chatham General Hospital School of Nursing

Edith ( Beecroft) Turner graduated from the Chatham General Hospital School of Nursing in the early to mid 1930's. She worked in Detroit Michigan in the maternity ward until she had to give up her career to go home to nurse her dying father. She was from Iona Station, Southwold Township, Elgin County. In her estate was found four photos in photographer's mounts, of women who were her friends at the nursing school. However there are no names on the photos, just the name of the photographer in Westlake, Chatham. Contact Maureen if you know the women in these photos and want to give them a good home. Maureen was kind enough to give permission to place the photos on Kent County GenWeb pages
