Florence "Jamie" Bohn was born April 26, 1908 in Point Douglas, Minnesota to Amasa James and Katherine James (nee Whotley [sic]). Florence moved with her parents in 1910 to a homestead in the Brock, Saskatchewan district. She took her initial schooling in Brock, and later attended Normal School in Saskatoon. In January of 1935, Florence married Walter Valentine Bohn who, during his lifetime, worked at lumber camps, hauled equipment, built railway lines, and provided maintenance for Highway 3. The two had three children: Myrna, Fern, and Murray. Frances' career as a teacher took her to a variety of schools. She taught at Mervin and Atwater before her position at Beatty, Saskatchewan, and later taught at Fairy Glen School between 1962 - 1965. this period was followed by a five year position at Pleasantdale, Saskatchewan. Frances retired in 1970 after 31 years of teaching. She regularly took part in Superannuated Teachers conventions, and was active in the Wapiti Regional Library, the Melfort United Church, and the Beatty Half-Century Club.
