Memorable Manitobans: Jeanette Christina Clark Taylor (1911-2003)

Community activist.

Born at Russell on 3 August 1911, she moved to Winnipeg with her family in 1923 where she attended Gladstone School, Laura Secord School, Gordon Bell School, and Kelvin High School. She received a secretarial diploma from the Dominion Business College and worked for several organizations through her business career. She became involved with the Women’s Institute at Gimli and at one time served as President and was also instrumental in establishing a regional library in the Interlake. In retirement, she spent 20 years as a volunteer at Riverview Health Centre, for which she received the Rick Hanson Volunteer Award and the Queen Elizabeth Golden Jubilee Medal. She died at Winnipeg on 25 October 2003.
