Memorable Manitobans: Mary Kolach Faseruk (c1925-2001)

Educator.

Born in Poland around 1925, daughter of Josepha Kolach and Stanislaw Kolach, she immigrated with her family to Canada in 1928 and settled in Manitoba. She was raised at Poplarfield, attended Dehowa School, and was awarded a B. J. Hales scholarship in 1943 to attend the Central Normal School, from which she graduated. She later attained a BA degree (1969) from the University of Winnipeg. Her teaching career included work in rural Manitoba, at Clydebank School (1943-1944), North Polsen School (1945-1947), and High Plains School (1947-1948), and within the Old Kildonan School District (later Seven Oaks School Division), teaching at Lloyd George School (1948-1958) and Templeton School (1958-1965; Principal 1959-1965), as well as Principal of Red River School (1965-1968) and Victory School (1969-1980s) before retiring. She married Peter Faseruk (1921-1988) and they had a son, Leonard Faseruk. She died at the Seven Oaks Hospital on 28 August 2001.
