Memorable Manitobans: Nastia “Nita” Romanche [Romanczycz] (?-1993)


Daughter of Dmytro Romanczycz and Eva Romanczycz (?-1956), sister of Marion Pepper, she grew up in a single-parent household, her father having separated from the family in 1920. She was Principal of Lundar School (1933-1934) before teaching classes, sewing, and handwork at Victoria School (1939-1943, 1944-1946) at Selkirk. She moved to Winnipeg and joined the staff of the Winnipeg School Division, working at Florence Nightingale School (1946-1948), Luxton School (1949-1957, Elementary Department), Principal Sparling School (Elementary Department, 1957-1959), and King Edward School (1959-1968). She and her husband had one son. She died at the St. Boniface Hospital on 26 October 1993 and was buried in the All Saints Cemetery.
