Retired in Chilliwack, Cornelia Lehn grew up on a Saskatchewan farm with a Mennonite background. After taking a Master's degree from the University of Iowa, she published four children's books. She has co-written the memoir of legendary northern Alberta Dr. Mary Percy Jackson, The Homemade Brass Plate, with a foreword by Grant MacEwan. Published by Helena Braun of Sardis, it's the story of Jackson's 45 years as a physician since she arrived at Battle River Prairie from England in 1929.
