The occupation is misspelled. She was a comptometrist, a person who operated a comptometer, which was the first commercially successful key-driven mechanical calculator.

I think you will find that she is a Conductoress [spelling?] for the Santa Fe Railway. At least that's what I make it out to be though I'm not too sure of the spelling.
