In 1954 she graduated from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec with a diploma in Physio and Occupational Therapy and in 1975 she graduated from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta with a Bachelor of Physical Therapy. She married William Wallace Mathewson and together they have four children; Bruce, Wendy, Robert and William Mathewson. <p>Mufty began her career in 1954 as a physiotherapist at Montreal General Hospital in Montreal, Quebec and worked in this profession until 1979 when she changed careers and taught photography at the City Arts Centre in Edmonton, Alberta. Much of her volunteer work centered on photography, she published articles and was a member of several photographic arts committees.
