Memorable Manitobans: Annie Cheyne Dickie (1887-1940)

Educator.

Born at Carlyle, North West Territories [now Saskatchewan] on 9 July 1887, daughter of James Ray Dickie (1846-?) and Elizabeth Mitchell Dickie (1848-?), she moved to Winnipeg with her family around 1890. After taking teacher training, she taught for the Winnipeg School School at Argyle School (1908-1911), Greenway School (1911-1921, 1923-1927), General Wolfe Junior High School (1927-1931), and took part in the Overseas Education League teacher exchange program during 1921-1923, teaching at Cape Colony in South Africa during the first school year, and in Melbourne, Australia during the second. Returning to Winnipeg, she served as the Principal of Fort Rouge School (1931-1935) and Montcalm School (1935-1940). She was a member of Westminster United Church. She died unmarried at her Winnipeg home, 103 Chestnut Street, on 31 August 1940 and was buried in the Old Kildonan Cemetery.
