Mabel Barker's first contribution to rural life was her voice, as she travelled throughout Alberta by buggy for musical engagements. She served the United Farm Women of Alberta and its descendant organizations in several capacities since 1926. Mrs. Barker was honored by the Red Cross for 25 years of service, including war time work as district campaign head. Her interest also laid in the rural family, and she had been a member of the Child and Family Welfare Association.
