Name of creator
Charlotte Irene Lapp was born in Alameda, Saskatchewan, on September 12, 1906. Her father, Esli (1881-1970), and mother, Beatrice Maude (nee Caron), (1880-1972), had homesteaded there. In 1910, the family moved to a homestead west of Redcliff. The Lapp's had four more children: Ira (1908), Gus (1912), George (1916) and Gordon (1918). Irene attended small country schools and later, attended high school in Medicine Hat. She attended Calgary Normal School in 1924, and earned a first class teaching certificate, following in her mothers footsteps. In 1938, she received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Alberta, and in 1958, a senior certificate in Home Economics. Irene Lapp taught at schools throughout the district and later, in Medicine Hat, until her retirement in 1970. Irene was active in the United Church, the Canadian Club, the University Women's Club, the Medicine Hat Historical Society and the Retired Teachers Organization. Irene Lapp passed away on January 11, 1993, at the age of 86 years. Just prior to her death, she was actively involved in contributing to the writing of the history book entitled "Wagon Trails and Pioneer Tales", a local history of the Bowell to Bowmanton area, covering the areas north of the South Saskatchewan River Medicine Hat.
