Memorable Manitobans: Peter Michael Luba (1923-2003)


Born at Angusville in 1923, son of Michael Luba (1896-1975) and Nettie Luba (1899-1990), he began a teaching career at the age of 17 and worked at several places in rural Manitoba, including Eastdale School (1941-1942). He was the Principal of Oakburn School (1949-1952), David Livingstone School (1958-1960), and Vincent Massey High School (1964-1966). In 1966, he served for a year as a School Inspector in the Morris-Macdonald School Division then became a consultant for the Manitoba Department of Education and lived at Winnipeg. He retired in 1990. On 5 October 1950, he married fellow teacher Olive Deanna Kachur (1930-2012) at Rorketon and they had two sons and a daughter. He died at Winnipeg on 9 June 2003.
