Memorable Manitobans: Lottie Isabella Irwin Richardson (1895-1967)

Educator.

Born at Simcoe, Ontario on 18 November 1895, daughter of George Irwin (c1855-1926) and Rachel Nicol (1857-1949), she came to Manitoba with her family at an early age. She taught at Stoney Creek School (1916), McConnell School, and Roche School (1918-1919), and was Principal of Bethany School (1919-1920). On 25 August 1920, she married Jessie Charles Richardson (?-1980) in the RM of Langford and they had five children: Joyce Isabella Richardson, Robert Richardson, Murray Richardson, Ross Richardson, and John “Jack” Richardson. She died in 1967 and was buried in the Hamiota Cemetery.
