It was then necessary for Nola to take over more household responsibilities – meals, cleaning and caring for her younger brother. Though it was her intention to attend university to study nutrition and become a dietitian, funds were unavailable to cover the necessary tuition. Her alternative choice was to enroll in a 4 year nursing program, specializing in the kitchens. The program, however, required students to be 18 years of age, and since she was only 16 at the time, her mother suggested she take a Rapid Commercial course at Moose Jaw Tech., which she did. Nola was also working at the National System of Baking at this time. By spring of 1949, she was working 3 days a week and attending school 3 days. In the fall of 1951 Nola met and married her husband (Robert Rintoul), who was in oil exploration.

Over the years, Nola and Robert built a successful marriage, family, and business. In 1984, the Rintoul’s employees bought them out and they retired. Now, in their latter years of retirement, Nola and Robert have decided on a plan of philanthropy to share their success and good fortune with others. The Nola (Cooper) Rintoul Scholarship, established in 2011, is but one of those philanthropic items and it is Nola’s hope that it will help another student along their life journey.
