    Biographical history

    Constance Jukes Sanders was born March 7, 1891; she was the daughter of Gilbert Edward (1863-1955) and Caroline Augusta (Jukes) Sanders (1859-1938). Shortly after Constance's birth, the family traveled to Macleod, North-West Territories where her father was an inspector with the Royal North West Mounted Police. After her father served in the Boer War, he was stationed in Calgary, North-West Territories (1901-1906), Regina, Saskatchewan (1906-1910) and Athabasca Landing, Alberta (1910-1911). In 1911, Constance's father became a police magistrate in Calgary, Alberta.

    During the First World War, Constance worked as a volunteer nurse in England. She married Hugh E. Pearson on November 16th, 1918 in England. They returned to Edmonton, Alberta where Hugh was a land surveyor and then active in the radio business.

    Constance and Hugh had three children: Constance (Mollie) Margaret (Mackenzie) (1919-1972), Hugh John Sanders (Sandy) (1921-2005), and Gerald (Gerry) E. (1928-1994).
