Memorable Manitobans: Edna Hellen Mackie McIvor (1902-1982)

Community activist.

Born at Keith, Banffshire, Scotland, daughter of William Mackie and Isabelle Gray, she married John McIvor in 1925, two years before coming to Canada. She was a Chaplain’s volunteer at the Stony Mountain Penitentiary for nearly 50 years, served for eight years on the local school board, and was chairman of the Centennial Committee for Stony Mountain, and a member of the Catholic Women’s League and Ladies Auxiliary of the Stony Mountain Legion. She operated the Western Express Lottery booth at the Winnipeg Airport and was an associate member of the Third Order of St. Francis. She initiated the Stony Mountain Pioneers and Veterans Monument. She was inducted into the Order of Canada (1981) in recognition of her long record of volunteer work in the criminal justice system. She died at Winnipeg on 30 December 1982 and was buried in Christ Church Anglican Cemetery.
