Memorable Manitobans: Shirley Timm-Rudolph (c1957-2014)

Municipal official.

She was a Winnipeg city councillor from 1986 to 1992 and from 1995 to 2002, at a time when there were few women in municipal politics. She served on the Executive Policy Committee from 1997 to 1998. She ran unsuccessfully for a seat in Parliament (1988) and for Mayor of Winnipeg (2004). She was a trustee for the River East Transcona School Division from 2010 to her death, and she served on the boards of Concordia Hospital, Tourism Winnipeg, Association of Manitoba Municipalities, and Federation of Canadian Municipalities. She was President of the Yellowhead Highway Association. She died at Winnipeg on 11 May 2014, survived by her husband and a daughter. She is commemorated by Lake Shirley Memorial Park in Winnipeg.
