Deborah Cowley Life
Deborah Mason was born and raised in Canada. She had many adventures elsewhere too. She was traveling extensively after graduating from college. Deborah traveled all over Europe until settling down near Niagara Falls. Later that year, she met her future husband, Paul Cowley, whom she would eventually marry.
Deborah Mason had the privilege of interviewing many famous people for Reader’s Digest. Her first article was about AMREF Flying Doctors, and she interviewed them in Nairobi, Kenya, where they are based. She also reported on eye doctors from ORBIS who work out of a DC10 aeroplane to help provide surgeries that would otherwise be unavailable due to distance or remoteness. Deborah met Jane Goodall at an oceanside villa just outside Dar es Salaam Tanzania and Queen Sylvia in Sweden.
In 2000, Deborah Mason travelled from Canada and spent a week with an astonishing woman: Kathy Knowles. This visit led to a long association between them that included 17 visits by her lover for ten years! But what is even more amazing than this impressive feat was how she changed not only one person’s life but many through her hardworking efforts as a librarian for adults and English teacher at schools on behalf of the World Literacy Foundation (WLF).
She is one of the most beloved figures in Canadian history. Her famous book is One Woman’s Journey: A Portrait of Pauline Vanier.
