Memorable Manitobans: Mary Montgomery (1890-?)

Educator.

Born in Saskatchewan on 20 August 1890, daughter of James Montgomery (1861-1962) and Mary Jemima Montgomery (1872-1962), the family came to Virden where, in 1912, she became a teacher at Virden School. In June 1963, she retired after 50 years of teaching and the school was renamed Mary Montgomery School in her honour.
