    Biographical history

    Nancy Muriel Reay was born in Hardisty, Alberta in 1917, the daughter of William Reay and Mary Jane Graham (1889-1974). She grew up in Andrew, Alberta where her father was an Alberta Provincial Police (APP) constable stationed at Andrew, Alberta.

    After marriage and divorce (possibly from John Joseph Ehly), she married Charles Orlando Dunn (1914-1997) in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1946. She died in Abbotsford, British Columbia in 1984.
