History / Biographical
Elizabeth McEachern was born in 1888 on Lot 1, Concession 3 Dunwich township. She was the daughter of Finlay McEachern and Elizabeth Kerr McEachern. According to the biography provided in the Crinan Tweedsmuir History, Volume one, Elizabeth attended Campbellton school to fifth grade and then went to Toronto to work as a house maid. The married couple she worked for had twin children and the mother thought Elizbaeth should be a nurse. But Elizabeth didn't believe she had enough education. Both the lady and Elizabeth knew Dr. R. J. McMillan and with their help Elizabeth worked to get enough education to enter Toronto General Hospital from where she graduated in 1914. One year later she went overseas to treat allied casualties in Unit 4 from Toronto General Hospital. She spent time working in the hospitals in France, Greece and Malta before being appointed head nurse of surgery in an English hospital, where she remained for three years. She was decorated with the Royal Red Cross (2nd Class) on June 30, 1917 in Salonika (Greece). After the war,she worked with Christie Street Veteran's Hospital for several years before joining the Ontario Red Cross. She was superintendent at Outpost Clinics before going to Kirkland Lake. In 1930, she supervised a ten bed Red Cross Clinic. It expanded into a 100 bed general hospital. She was superintendent of Kirkland Lake General Hospital for thirty years until she retired in 1960 to her home on North Yonge Street, Toronto. She died October 9, 1972 at the age of 84 at Sunnybrook Hospital. She was buried on October 12 in Fairview Cemetery, Dunwich. The Elgin County Book of Remembrance, The Great War 1914-1918, Vol. 1 reads: "Elizabeth McEachern R.R.C. Nursing Sister. Daughter of Finley McEachern. Enlisted March 1915. Served in Canada Canadian Army Medical Corps; England Canadian Army Medical Corps; France and Salonkia Canadian Army Medical Corps. Mentioned in despatches. Discharged September 1920."
