    Biographical history

    Anne Lothian was born in Egremont, Alberta on February 28, 1931; she was the daughter of James and Ada Mary (Payne) Lothian. Both James and Ada were likely of Scottish descent. James first tried homesteading near Philips, Alberta and then in Egremont. He married Ada on June 4, 1930.

    During the depression, James operated a store in Egremont. While James served during the Second World War, Ada and her children moved to Jasper Place, Alberta. The family returned to Egremont after the war; they moved to Edmonton, Alberta in the late 1950s. Anne worked in Edmonton, Alberta as a stenographer then later as a librarian with the Edmonton Separate School Board until her retirement in 1989.

    James died August 25, 1965 and Ada January 26, 1973. Anne died in Edmonton in 2012.
