Memorable Manitobans: Sally Warnock (?-1958)

Community activist.

Born near Coleraine, Northern Ireland, she came to Canada in 1911. She began working for the Winnipeg Humane Society in 1920, serving as its Secretary for 33 years. She died in her office on 16 August 1958, believed to be in her late 80s. She refused to divulge her age for fear that she would be forced to retire. Buried in Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens, she was commemorated by “Aunt Sally’s Farm” at Assiniboine Park and Warnock Street in Winnipeg.
