Memorable Manitobans: Marguerite Maley [Males] “Margaret” Elliott (1870-1946)


Born in Ontario on 21 July 1870, she moved to Manitoba sometime before 1900. On 27 December 1899, she married Methodist minister George James Elliott at Neepawa and they had one son: Thomas Maxwell Maley “Tom” Elliott (1903-?). For the first decade of their marriage, she accompanied her husband to various congregational postings in Alberta and Saskatchewan before returning to Manitoba in 1909. Upon settling at Winnipeg, she joined the teaching staff of the Winnipeg School Division, working at John M. King School (1910-1913), La Verendrye School (1914-1915), Albert School (1915-1916, Principal), Laura Secord School (1916-1926), and Isaac Brock School (1926-1931). She died at Winnipeg on 25 March 1946 and was buried in the Elmwood Cemetery.
