Portage, OntarioAn extremely hard worker, John Niddrie has not been forgotten by the community he served. Honoured with a plaque at the Morley church, the missionary's generosity and dedication to his pupils and congregation are well remembered. While he held attitudes that today seem anachronistic, he acted with a selfless generosity and faith. He contributed to the growth of the Morley community and those he worked with in northern Manitoba. Many recall his ability to travel in rugged conditions and as a strong man who carried more than his share of the burden-an important contribution during a time when one's ability to travel was often a matter of life or death.
