Memorable Manitobans: Mary Radych (1901-1994)

Hotelier, gardener.

Born at Dymycze, Poland in 1901, she immigrated to Canada in 1923. Along with her husband Onufry Radych (?-1975), she operated a hotel at Fannystelle and Minitonas. After retirement they returned to Winnipeg and lived in Point Douglas. She organized and cared for the garden at the Ross House Museum for which she was acknowledged by the Manitoba Historical Society. In 1992, she received the 125 Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada Medal, which was awarded to “Canadians who were deemed to have made a significant contribution to their fellow citizens, to their community, or to Canada”. She died at Winnipeg on 14 December 1994 and was interred in the Glen Eden Memorial Gardens.
