Book Description
My Story is a memoir my mother, Nurse Myra Bennett, wrote in the 1960s. My mother was not only a wife and mother and nurse, she was a shoulder to cry on in times of sorrow. She was a shelter in a storm, she was an educator, she was the lady with the lantern, and most of all, she was a warm and loving being...As Dr. Noel Murphy once said, "There will never be another Nurse Bennett and hopefully there will never be such need." Excerpt from foreword by Trevor Bennett.

Myra Grimsley was born in London in 1890. She spent ten years as a nurse in England before coming to Daniel's Harbour on Newfoundland's Great Northern Peninsujla in 1921. She was known simply as The Nurse along the 200 miles of coast that was her responsibility. After her 1922 marriage to Angus Bennett, she and her equally hard working and dedicated husband were affectionately known as The Nurse and Angus.
