Historia biográfica

Emmie Ducie was born in 1916 in the Coates district near Dundurn, Saskatchewan. Her elementary schooling was taken in a one-room school at Coates; she was awarded the Governor-General's Medal in Grade 8. Her high school was largely by correspondence, via Nutana Collegiate, Saskatoon. She earned a BSc in Home Economics from the University of Saskatchewan in 1941, and her MSc from Washington State in 1943. She worked, variously, at the Extension Division of the University of Saskatchewan (1940-1942); as Home Economist for the Department of Agriculture (1943); as Nutritionist for the Toronto branch of the Red Cross (1943-1945); as Supervisor of Girls' Work, Extension Division, University of Saskatchewan (1945-1946); as Special Lecturer, in a joint appointment with Extension and the College of Home Economics (1969-1973); part-time at the Regina Campus/University of Regina (1973-1975); and perhaps was best known for her regular column in The Western Producer, for 50 years, beginning in 1949. She was president of the Saskatchewan Home Economics Association and the Canadian Home Economics Association; served as president of the Saskatchewan Women's Institute and Federated Women's Institutes of Canada; was a member of the Saskatchewan Arts Board for 10 years and of the Saskatchewan Milk Control Board for 16 years. She married Langford Oddie in 1946. Her mother, Emma Roberts Ducie, was born in England in 1883 and emigrated to Canada with her family in 1907. She married Harry Ducie, a farmer and school trustee, in 1909; they had three children, Harold, Rose, and Emmie. Emma Ducie organized the Coates Homemakers' Club and continued to be an active member of the Clubs and Women's Institutes at the local, provincial, and national level. She also served with the Saskatoon Council of Women, the Saskatoon Friendship Club and the Canadian Institute of International Affairs. She was also a long-serving member of the advisory council for the College of Agriculture at the University of Saskatchewan. She died in 1990. Rose Ducie was born in 1911. She graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with an honors degree in English and History when she was 19 years old and in 1935, enrolled in Business College. She joined the staff of the Western Producer in 1937 as assistant to the women's editor, Violet McNaughton. When Violet McNaughton retired in 1950, Rose became women's editor for the Producer; a position she retained until her marriage to Allen Jardine in 1960. They lived briefly in Flaxcombe, then moved to Oyen, Alberta, where they ran a farm machinery dealership. She served on the Oyen Chamber of Commerce for over 27 years and was extremely active within the community. During this time she wrote a column, "Garden Chat," for the Producer. Her final column was written in 1996. Rose died in 2003.
