married George Alexander Kerr and moved to Edmonton. In 1962 they moved back to Calgary and Win and George established and ran
Kerr Pharmacy. She returned to university part time until receiving her teaching certificate and after moving to Lac des Arcs, near
Canmore, taught part time and drove a 60 passenger school bus full time all around the Banff area. Win then lived in Banff for a time and
eventually retired to Qualicum Beach in 1984. She moved to Victoria in 2003 and during the next two years enjoyed living at Somerset
House where she could be close to the ocean and lots of family.
