Memorable Manitobans: John Ephram “Jack” Tisdale (1875-1967)

Physician.

Born in Quebec on 16 September 1875, son of William Tisdale (1847-?) and Elizabeth Imlay (1853-1930), brother of Walter F. Tisdale, as a child he came with his family to Manitoba and lived on a farm near Greenway, teaching at Delta School for a time. In 1906, he graduated from the Manitoba Medical College then practiced medicine at Baldur, Swan Lake, Bradwardine, and Kenton before returning to Winnipeg where he practiced from 1930 to 1965. On 22 August 1906, he married Emma Elizabeth “June” Kinley (1878-1966) in the Rural Municipality of Strathcona. They had two children: Frances Elizabeth Tisdale (1910-?, wife of F. J. McFarland) and Paul Kinley Tisdale (1913-1998). He was a member of Augustine United Church and a champion pistol and rifle marksman. In 1946, he was appointed as a founding member of the Historic Sites Advisory Board of Manitoba (1946-?). He died at Winnipeg on 26 November 1967 and was buried in the Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens.
