Businesswoman, civil servant.

Born at Winnipeg on 27 July 1948, daughter of Doris and Bill Pankiw, she grew up in Winnipeg’s North End, attending Margaret Scott School, King Edward School, and Technical Vocational School (Tec Voc). She worked in radio, advertising, retail and during the 1980s, and operated “IF you have to get dressed in the morning”, a vintage clothing store on Corydon Avenue. For the last decade of her life, she was film liaison for the City of Winnipeg Film and Special Events Office, negotiating city services for the making of films, videos, commercials, and major motion pictures.
