Dates of existence



Caroline (nee Andrejowich) Haydey was born on September 26, 1919, in Witkowo (a.k.a. Fitkiw) Poland, to parents William (Wasyl) and Pauline (Paulina) Andrejowich. The Andrejowich family settled on a 20-acre farm in the Cook's Creek area in Manitoba. Caroline attended Zora school in Cook’s Creek until grade 8. Her father, Wasyl, worked as a furrier in Winnipeg, while her mother worked as the Vice President of City Gas, Heating, and Appliance Co., Ltd., which she ran together with Caroline’s brother John.

Caroline moved to Winnipeg to complete her education, attending Machray School for grade 9 while working as a nanny. She then began a program at St. John’s Technical High School, but became sick and moved home again. The following year, she returned to Winnipeg and began attending Daniel MacIntyre School. She worked for room and board in Brandon, and was eventually able to attend Normal School. She also taught music to junior classes at Zora School.

She married Peter Haydey of Gonor and had two children, Richard Haydey and Teresa (nee Haydey) Benoit. She worked as a music teacher in Rockwood School for five years. At the same time, she attended night classes and summer school to obtain her B.A. and B.Ed. degrees. She also taught at Grant Park Junior High School and Greenway School.

Upon her retirement in 1980, Caroline Haydey received a Manitoba Teachers’ Society scholarship, which enabled her to relocate to Munich, Germany, for three years in order to obtain her PhD.

Caroline Haydey died on October 26, 2009, in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
