Memorable Manitobans: Kathleen Eunice Everett Pennock (1922-2002)

Lawyer, community activist.

Born at Courtenay, British Columbia in 1922, daughter of Catherine Milligan Ritchie (1898-1972) and Horace Everett, she grew up at Vancouver and Winnipeg. Admitted to the Manitoba Bar in 1949, she was one of the first women in Manitoba to practice law. On 12 July 1947, she married Douglas Villiers Pennock (1917-1999) in Holy Trinity Anglican Church and they subsequently had three daughters and two sons.

She served on committees of the Manitoba Centennial Corporation as well as for other social causes, including the International Red Cross, Canadian Red Cross, Manitoba Red Cross, Lester B. Pearson College of the Pacific, St. Boniface Hospital, Victoria Conservatory of Music, and Government House Foundation. In recognition of her community service, she received the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Medal (1977).

She died at Victoria, British Columbia on 27 July 2002.
