Myrna Inglis (Ireland)

I was raised on Albadon Farms in Teeswater, with my six siblings.

When I was born, we lived on Albadon Farms in Teeswater. There were seven of us raised in the stone house. 

 

Mom’s name was Alberta and my dad’s was Don, so that is how they came up with Albadon Farms. 

 

My family ran a dairy farm, and bought cattle from the Inglis family. 

 

I went to a one room school house, a mile and a quarter south of Teeswater. It is now a house. I walked to school.

 

I grew up doing 4H, both calf projects and homemaking. I was also a member of Teeswater Junior Farmers. The year I was president, I was complimented on the job I was doing and thought this was quite the thing, considering this boy was three years older than I was.

 

I went to the University of Guelph and for my Bachelor of Household Science. I majored in food and nutrition. I met my husband at Junior Farmers weekend, while attending university. 

 

I needed 50 weeks of internship to become a registered dietitian. I did 15 weeks after my 2nd year of university in Edmonton and was at Victoria Hospital in London, during my third year. After graduation, I was in Guelph for 20 weeks, because I needed to get hospital experience. 

 

 

I was the first dietitian hired in Bruce County. I worked at the Walkerton Hospital, which at the time was called County of Bruce General. I started a cook’s program with the Hanover dietitian, which helped them to obtain their cook’s paper.I worked this job from 1969 until 1992. 

 

I then worked for Homecare until 2004. 

 

I then went to part time hours at longterm care facilities  in Hanover, Lucknow and Palmerston. 

 

I retired in October of 2011.
