Marilynn Cooper and and her husband, Brian D. Gushulak
, inherited the photos of her grandmother, Eva (Neiley) Cooper.
"Eva (Neiley) Cooper completed Normal School in Regina in 1910 and taught at a couple of one room schools in Saskatchewan for two years before moving to Vancouver to attend nursing college." This is one of her photos of students in 1918 at Airedale School District 3813.
Eva Neiley was born in Kings County Nova Scotia in 1891. Her mother died three years later and her father remarried. He left Nova Scotia in 1906 and homesteaded near Saltcoats. Following graduation from Yorkton High School Eva attended Normal School in Regina in 1910 and then taught for approximately two years ( Glyndwr and Clova). Her father passed in 1912 after which she went on to fulfill a dream to become a nurse. Graduating from Vancouver General Hospitalís nursing college in 1915 she returned to Unity, Saskatchewan where she was matron of the small hospital until she married a local farmer, Samuel Ward Cooper. Eva died in 1977.
The only person I can identify from the Airedale School is the man, second from the left. He is Evaís brother in law. Macnevin Deavitt Bradshaw (1888 -1942). He married Evaís sister, Ruby who was also a teacher for a short time. They farmed near Senlac. There are no other names available for any of the people in the picture, however, if anyone has any ideas, please do e-mail
and then the names could be added to the web page. Brian D. Gushulak
