Memorable Manitobans: Mabel Z. Dulmadge (1876-1962)


Born at Picton, Ontario in August 1876, daughter of Jacob Hebert Dulmadge and Nancy Elizabeth Gordon (1850-1904), she moved with her family to Winnipeg in 1881. She attended Euclid School, Central Collegiate, and took teacher training. She taught at Albert School (1902-1904) and Fort Rouge School (1904-1906) before transferring to the Children’s Home School as Principal (1906-1916), continuing in that role at the Children’s Home School / Julia Clark School (1916-1921), after which she stayed on as a teacher (1921-1929). In June 1929, she was granted one year’s paid absence for her long service and retired from teaching in 1935. She died at the St. Boniface Sanatorium on 26 January 1962 and was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
