Memorable Manitobans: Mabel Louise Rutledge Johnson (1905-1991)

Educator.

Born at Lauder on 7 July 1905, daughter of Ida Jessie Clark and Robert James Rutledge, she attended Lauder School and Normal School then taught in rural schools, including Salem School (?-?), until her marriage on 5 July 1927 to Frederick Milford Johnson (1894-1961). They operated a grocery store at St. James until 1943. She returned to teaching at Polson School (1946-1958), serving as Vice-Principal at Salisbury School (1958-1959, 1964-1967) and Hampstead School (1960-1964) and retiring in 1970 as the Principal of Donald School. She wrote a history of the Manitoba Teachers’ Credit Union, of which she had been a member, director, and Board Chair. She died at Winnipeg in May 1991 and was buried in the Elmwood Cemetery.
