Notice biographique

Mary Schroeder was born on 12 August 1919 in Neuenburg, South Russia. She immigrated to Canada in 1923 with her parents Kornelius J. Neufeld and Maria (Froese) Neufeld. She married Constantin Peter Schroeder (1916-1967). They had two children – Hilda and Marianne. As a young adult (and before she was married in 1959) she worked as a volunteer in places such as the Rosthern Nursing Home, the Rosthern Bible School, Brandon Mental Hospital and Ninette Sanatorium. She also worked in a Niagara canning factory in 1948. She was not a nurse, but called a “nursing assistant” who was supervised by a nurse. She also spent two winters as a cook at the Rosthern Bible School. She died in Rosthern, Saskatchewan on 15 April 2005.

Historique de la conservation

This album came into the possession and care of Hilda Schroeder of Edmonton after her mother passed away in 2005.

Portée et contenu

This fonds consists of one album containing photos of Mary Neufeld (later Mrs. Mary Schroeder), the staff, activities, residences, buildings and landscapes associated with the places she worked before she married in 1959. One series were taken in 1947 and 1951 while working at the Rosthern Invalid / Nursing Home. Another series were taken in the summer of 1952 when Mary Neufeld served in the Brandon Mental Hospital on a Voluntary Service (VS) assignment. Another series of photos were taken during the summer of 1953 when she worked at the Ninette (Manitoba) Sanitorium. There are also a few photos from 1948 when she worked at a canning factory in the Niagara (Ontario) region and visited Niagara Falls, Crystal Beach, and Brock's monument at Queenston. A few photos were taken when she worked as a cook at the Rosthern Bible School in 1951-1952.
