History / Biographical
Gertrude Ellen Leslie (nee Smith) was born in Sydney, Australia on January 21, 1886. She came to Canada in April 1907, but settled in Stockton, California for two years before going to England for eleven years. While in England, Gertrude took her teacher training. After teaching for a couple of years in Leeds, she returned to Canada, settling in Kenton, MB. Gertrude married John Wilmer Leslie (1883-1972) in 1910. The couple farmed at Elkhorn, where they raised nine children: Len, Allan, Clifton, Merle, Winnie, Lyle, Ronald, Alex and Jack. In 1919, the family started spending their winters in Elkhorn. Gertrude and Wilmer lost the farm in 1931 as a result of the Depression. They then moved to a farm at Blythe, where they remained until 1946 when Gertrude and Wilmer reitred. For the next 22 years the couple spent their summers in Elkhorn and winters at the Coast in Abbotsford and Burnaby, BC. In 1968, they bought a house in Elkhorn and in 1978, Gertrude moved to Sherwood Home in Virden, MB. Gertrude Leslie died in 1994, in Virden, MB. She is buried at Elkhorn Cemetery.
