Memorable Manitobans: Areen Mary Mulder (1933-2021)


Born at Winnipeg on 11 April 1933, daughter of Gerrit “George” Mulder (1889-1965) and Dirksje “Daisy” Bezemer (1898-1963), sister of Dirk Gilbert Mulder, her childhood was spent at East St. Paul where her parents had a market gardening business. After attending Lord Selkirk High School, she began working as a clerk-typist for the Commercial Union Assurance Company. In 1969, she became secretary to the Manitoba Historical Society and also served on its Council and Executive. A collection of materials that she made during her involvement with the Society was subsequently deposited in the Archives of Manitoba. She was an active member of St. Philip's Anglican Church. She died unmarried at the St. Boniface Hospital on 22 June 2021.
