Memorable Manitobans: Naomi Mara Moore (1871-1946)

Educator.

Born at Thistle Hill, Ontario on 14 February 1871, daughter of William W. Moore (1837-?) and Ann Moore (1837-?), she accompanied her family to Manitoba prior to 1891. Settling at Brandon, she became a school teacher, working at Beaver Creek School and New Central School. She later moved to Portage la Prairie before relocating to Winnipeg around 1922, where she taught (c1922-1929) and was Principal (1929-1937) of Seven Oaks School in West Kildonan. In retirement, she was given life membership (1938) in the Manitoba Education Association. She died, unmarried, at the Conquest Nursing Home in Winnipeg on 17 July 1946 and was buried in the Old Kildonan Cemetery.
