Memorable Manitobans: Elizabeth Blanche Teeter “Betha” Moody (1886-1971)

Educator.

Born at Maple Creek, Saskatchewan on 7 November 1886, eldest daughter of Chancellor Teeter and Mary Zimmerman (1851-1919), and sister-in-law of Ruth Caroline Moody Hooker, she moved with her family as they relocated with her father’s ministerial positions, eventually settling at Selkirk in 1912 where she became a long-time educator in the Selkirk School District.

She worked as Principal of North Ward School / Victoria School and was a teacher at the Central School (1940-1947) and Devonshire School (1947-1954). She also taught Sunday School for 50 years and was a Life Member of the Missionary Society, leader of CGIT for many years, charter member of PEO (Chapter A), and President of the Women’s Missionary Society of Selkirk United Church (1933-1938). On 18 February 1930, she married James Joseph Moody (1882-1945) at the Selkirk United Church.

She died at Selkirk on 22 September 1971 and was buried in the Little Britain Cemetery.
