Memorable Manitobans: Ada Youlton Barnes (1906-1998)

Community activist.

Born at Winnipeg on 18 December 1906, youngest daughter of Samuel Youlton and Lizzie Marie Crouch, on 5 November 1927, she married Kenneth Dudley Barnes at Winnipeg. They had three children. She volunteered for more than 30 years with the Manitoba Branch of the Canadian Red Cross Society. In April 1966, she was elected the first female president of the Branch. Three years later, she was inducted into the Manitoba Order of the Buffalo Hunt, the first woman named Captain of the Hunt. Soon after, she and her husband retired to Victoria, British Columbia where she died on 5 March 1998.
