    Biographical history

    Mary Quarrie Ollerhead's family originated in Liverpool, England. She had a sister named Elizabeth Walker Ollerhead and she never married. In 1920 she visited Naples in Italy and in 1921 she visited England. She worked as a teacher in Toronto's Public Schools for a number of years. Mary was retired from the Toronto School Board 19 May 1933 after which she received monies from the Teacher's Superannuation Commission. She lived at Homewood Avenue while she was teaching. She was an active member of the First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto. Around the 1940's or 1950's she started to live at 55 Belmont Street, a residence for seniors. In July of 1952 she became quite ill and required professional nursing care. Mary Ollerhead died in the autumn of 1952 and was buried in the family plot in Brampton, Ontario.
