Memorable Manitobans: Hattie Lunn (?-?)
Daughter of Edward Lunn, and sister to May Edith “Mary” Lunn, she arrived at Winnipeg with her family in her youth and attended the Girl's Central School and the Winnipeg Collegiate Institute. As a teacher with the Winnipeg School Board, she was the Principal of the Children’s Home School (1891-1895) prior to taking a year’s leave of absence on account of ill health in August 1895. At the time of her request, she was living at Kansas City, Missouri. She returned briefly to Winnipeg by the spring of 1896 but may have gone back to Kansas City. Her later whereabouts are unknown but she may have married a Mr. Hopps and moved to Los Angeles, California by the 1950 death of her sister.
