Memorable Manitobans: Ethel Anderson (1916-2006)

Community activist.

Born at Portadown, Northern Ireland on 4 October 1916, the youngest child of Robert and Mary Anderson, she moved to Winnipeg with her mother in 1956. She worked at Washtronics from when she arrived until retirement in 1986. Her interests included the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and five-pin bowling. Proud of her Irish heritage, she was a member of the Irish Protestant bowling league and served as Secretary-Treasurer. She was also President of the Irish Heritage Association from 1973 to 1974. She died at the Misericordia Hospital on 4 July 2006.
