Memorable Manitobans: Elizabeth Hick (1886-1959)

Educator.

Born at Cumberland, England in 1886, she emigrated to Canada in 1912 and taught school at Estevan, Saskatchewan. Four years later, she moved to Winnipeg. Her husband, John Thomas Hick, died during the 1918 flu epidemic and, that same year, she joined the teaching staff of the Winnipeg School Board, spending 27 years at Fort Rouge School, the last seven as its Principal. She died at Winnipeg on 19 July 1959 and was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
