Willa Dallard was born on June 2, 1897 in Evergreen, Conecuh County, Alabama to Willis and Jean Bowen. The family soon moved to Texas and then to Oklahoma, where she began her education. After the Oklahoma territories joined the United States, difficulties arose for the family such that by the summer of 1909 the family moved to Canada, settling first in Vancouver and later to Amber Valley, Alberta (located north of Edmonton) where the family established a homestead. As there was no school in the newly established community, Willa as a young girl helped on the family farm by milking cows and working in the garden, but once she got older she began working in Athabasca and Edmonton to provide additional resources for the family. After a brief period of correspondence, Willa married Noah Robert Dallard on January 19, 1920 and they moved to Prelate, Saskatchewan where they operated a farm and raised a family. They were both active in the local wheat pool, credit union, co-operatives and politics. After her husband died in 1968, Willa remained on the farm alone for another three years before moving into the town of Prelate.

Willa died on April 3, 1988.
