Memorable Manitobans: Maureen Fritz-Lonergan (?-1992)

Community activist.

She graduated from the University of Manitoba School of Architecture in 1968 and earned a Masters degree from the Technical University of Nova Scotia in 1972. She later taught at the University of Manitoba School of Architecture. She worked to preserve the heritage of old St. Boniface, serving as President of the Residents’ Association of Old St. Boniface, and fighting against expansion of Provencher Boulevard, site of her family home, and Provencher Bridge. In 1987, she oversaw renovation of St. Mary’s Cathedral. In recognition of her contributions to the community, she received a City of Winnipeg Appreciation Award. She is commemorated by a plaque in front of the Old St. Boniface City Hall. She died of cancer at Winnipeg on 5 March 1992.
