'Aunt' Carrie figures prominently in the Vaucher Saga. Widowed early (at 26) and short on funds but well connected, Carrie showed considerable initiative in making a living. According to PJV, she started as a traveling companion for her wealthy friends. Then she set up a boarding house in Paris catering to daughter of canadian families rounding out their education on the continent. It was on her trip from Canada to Europe to stay at Carrie's that Florence Burk met Jean Vaucher's Aunt Marie and then Jean waiting at the railway station.

1904-1908: founded and ran St. Hilda's College in Calgary.
