Memorable Manitobans: Lorne William Reznowski (1901-1980)


Born at Dauphin on 19 September 1901, he graduated from the University of Manitoba Medical School in May 1927 and practiced medicine at Walhalla and Neche, North Dakota before returning to Manitoba in 1928 and practicing at Beausejour for a few months. He then returned to Winnipeg where he practiced in the North End until retirement in September 1977. On 26 May 1927, he married Anna Angela Brokowska (1899-1998) and they had four children, including Lorne A. Reznowski. He died at the St. Boniface Hospital on 5 September 1980 and was buried in the St. Mary’s Cemetery.
