"Here was this poor little guy out on the playground with a yoke on him. I thought that was so funny."

Lillian Parkinson was raised on a farm near Arundel in Quebec’s Laurentian Mountains, during the lean years of the Great Depression. From the day she started her first lessons at the village school she knew she wanted to be a teacher. After completing Grade 10 – the highest level of education then offered in this part of the country – Lillian’s parents sent her to board in Ste. Anne-de-Bellevue, west of Montreal, where she enrolled in a teacher-training program at MacDonald College, graduating in 1942.

When Lillian returned north her first assignment was teaching farmers’ children living round the village of Mille-Isle. She remembers that most of them were boys, several from the same family. One of their favourite games at recess was pretending to be barnyard animals. In winter her students skied to school. Before long soon she was skiing, too.

Lillian was working at the Rawdon school the year she met Cliff. He had his own horse and buggy and he used to drive it to town on Saturday night. One night an old man came to the boarding house where Lillian lived and insisted on taking her and a friend to a dance at the golf course. Cliff had another girl on his arm when he arrived, but somehow he and Lillian ended up dancing together most of the evening. That’s how their courtship started.
