Biographical history

Dorothy Mary "Dode" George, 1916- , was born near Chinook, Alberta. In 1937 she moved with her family to the United Kingdom. During the Second World War she met Joe Lowis, a Canadian soldier, and married him in 1945. In 1948 they settled on a farm in the Poplar Ridge district near Red Deer, Alberta. Around 1980 she was one of the members of the Poplar Ridge Historical Committee, a group established for the purpose of compiling and publishing an historical anthology on the Crossroads, Poplar Ridge, Norma, and Durham districts west of Red Deer. The book, The District's Diary : 95 Years of the Crossroads, Poplar Ridge, Norma, and Durham Districts, was published in 1981. The group, having completed its project, ceased to exist by 1985
