Dates of existence
Delta Mick was born in Powassan, Ontario and attended Powassan High School and Ottawa Business College before graduating from Riverdale Isolation Hospital, Toronto. She worked at Essex County Hospital in New Jersey and at Riverdale before joining the RCAMC in 1939.
During World War II, Delta and her sister Irene served in England, North Africa and Italy with number 15 Canadian General Hospital. Arriving in England in 1940 they were stationed at Bramshott, Surrey in a 1000 bed military hospital. They cared for soldiers wounded at Dieppe in 1942. In 1943 the sisters went to El Arrouche, North Africa with their unit. The RCAMC had set up a tent hospital that was taking casualties from the Sicilian campaign. The sisters were also skilled in the treatment of infectious diseases from their training at the Riverdale Isolation Hospital. They were able to use this expertise when an outbreak of smallpox amongst the British soldiers occurred. The sisters were then based in Caserta, Italy, nursing casualties from the Italian campaign. The sisters returned to Canada in 1945.
Delta passed away before her sister Irene, who died in 1995.
