Memorable Manitobans: Eugenia “Jean” Yacula (?-2010)

Businesswoman.

Born and raised in Winnipeg, she went into business with her husband and brother, owning hotels in Manitoba and Northwest Ontario. When her husband Val Yacula was elected a Member of Parliament, they relocated to Ontario until his death. She worked for the Province of Manitoba Emergency Measures Organization and was the Executive Secretary to the Director of Planning at the City of Winnipeg until her retirement. Active in the Ukrainian community, she performed as a singer and dancer in Ukrainian youth organizations and volunteered as a Ukrainian-language interpreter for various medical and legal concerns. In addition, she was a member of the Professional and Business Women’s Club of Winnipeg and served as a committee member with the Holy Family Ladies’ Auxiliary. She died at Winnipeg on 15 January 2010.
