Memorable Manitobans: Phyllis Margaret Holtby (1906-1993)

Music teacher.

Born at Winnipeg on 10 December 1906, daughter of Annie Walker (?-?) and John Hamilton Holtby (?-?), she began to study music at the age of five, first with her aunt Winnifred Walker and later with Myrtle Norman Ruttan, Dr. Bernard Naylor, and Miss Eva Clare. In 1970, she received the Manitoba Centennial Medal from the Manitoba Historical Society in recognition of her “many years as a teacher of music during which she has contributed to the culture of the province.” She also received the 125th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation Medal. She died at Winnipeg on 21 March 1993 and was buried in the Brookside Cemetery.
