One of the five Dionne Quintuplets who were born on May 28, 1934, in the farming community of Callendar, Ontario. They were born to poor farmers, Oliva and Elzire Dinone. There births were attended by midwives and Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe. After the births there was a great concern they would not survive, but as time went by there condition improved. They were entrusted to care of a nurse named, Louise de Kirline and was supervised by Dr. Dafoe. After a short time the Quints were taken from there parents and guardianship was given to the Ontario Government. They became a tourist attraction and were visited by millions pf people. Later in life they were given back to there parents' custody. They were used as models for brand name products and were the subject of many films and documentaries.
