Memorable Manitobans: Agnes Ann Blake Muloin (1897-1980)

Educator.

Born at Lisbon, North Dakota on 25 April 1897, youngest daughter of Thomas Blake (1854-1922) and Mary Jane Mulligan (1856-1937), she accompanied her family to Canada in 1901 and was naturalized in 1905. She grew up at Starbuck, graduated from teacher training, and taught school in rural Manitoba, including a Principalship of Vermette School (1923-1926) and teaching at Hayek School (1941-1942). On 28 December 1926, she marred Clovis Joseph Muloin (1900-1989) at St. Mary’s Church. They initially moved to Pine Falls and had a son. Later, they moved to British Columbia and settled at Surrey. She died at White Rock, British Columbia on 5 August 1980 and was buried in the Valley View Memorial Gardens in Surrey.
