A Life of Service

Nurse Myra Grimsley (Bennett) came to Daniel's Harbour, a Newfoundland out port community, in 1921. The war-trained English nurse volunteered for a Newfoundland posting from the British Overseas Nursing Association. For more than 50 years, Newfoundland's Nurse Myra Bennett was the only medical aid along almost 320 kilometres of rugged coastline on the Northern Peninsula.
