Memorable Manitobans: Goldie Nepon Micay (1915-2003)

Community activist.

Born at Winnipeg on 22 November 1915, daughter of Jacob and Sarah Nepon, she grew up in Fraserwood and returned to Winnipeg in 1939. She was the past president of the Aliyah Chapter of Hadassah and a member of the Peretz School Muter Farein, Liberal Party of Manitoba, YMHA, and Bnai Brith Women. Along with her husband Archibald “Archie” Micay, she supported many local institutions including the Asper Jewish Community Center, where they endowed The Micay Children’s Room, and they were among the founders of the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba. She spent summers in Winnipeg Beach and winters in Florida and Arizona. She died at Winnipeg on 12 September 2003 and was interred in the Rosh Pina Memorial Park.
