Biographical history

Mary Joan (Mullally) Bradley was born in 1911 to James and Margaret Mullally. She was the youngest of three children and had two older siblings: a brother named Carroll (b. 1904) and a sister named Mary (b. 1908).

Mary grew up in Souris, Prince Edward Island. As a young woman she went to Charlottetown to study nursing. She graduated from the Charlottetown Hospital School of Nursing on 1 September 1937. At that time she was working at the Provincial Sanatorium and remained there until her marriage to Robert E. Bradley on 3 August 1938. Mary then left nursing and moved with her husband to 122 Hillsborough Street in Charlottetown.

With the outbreak of World War II, Mary went back to work. From 1939 to 1945 she did private duty nursing at both the Charlottetown and Prince Edward Island hospitals. Mary and Robert purchased their first home during this period, and moved into their house at 93 Upper Queen Street in 1942. In December 1945, Mary went to work at the Charlottetown Clinic and remained in this position until 1960. On 1 September 1987, Mary celebrated the golden jubilee of her graduation from the Charlottetown Hospital School of Nursing. The Class of 1937 reunion included a mass at Mount St. Mary
