Memorable Manitobans: Verna Merle Christina Feely Green (1908-1999)

Community leader.

Born in Winnipeg, she resided in River Heights as a child and was educated at Mulvey School, Kelvin High School, and the University of Manitoba. She taught school until moving to Edmonton in 1934. She and her husband then moved to Minnedosa and operated a local five-and-dime store from 1941 to 1967. For many years she wrote annual Santa letters to local children from Box No. 1, Snow Flake Lane. She was honoured often for this service and was awarded the Order of the Buffalo Hunt in 1979. Green died at Minnedosa.
